Archives

Belvoir has archives for many of our previous productions, including footage recorded of productions during their season. Archival footage is captured to keep a record of the performance as it was staged. Usually filmed from one, or sometimes two fixed cameras.

Archival footage can be viewed on site, at Belvoir, by small school groups for educational purposes. Viewing archival footage is not available online or off-site at all as per agreements with the cast and creatives of our productions. Some of our performances have been recorded specifically for school groups to view online. See our Recorded Live Performances Digital offering for more information about how to bring Belvoir work into your classroom.

Archival Viewings are available onsite only. Priority is given to schools who are also booked for a 2022 performance.

You may choose to watch any number of archives and can choose to watch segments or the full run time of a production.

An admin fee is applicable to viewings based on the length of time required – you will be quoted for this service in response to your request.
