We have both physical and digital images in the collection. They all come from Denmark or have some kind of connection with the country.

In the theatre collection, you will find material on a wide range of performing arts, such as dance, theatre, performance art, circus and opera.
We collect released video productions as a part of our preservation of the Danish cultural heritage.
