The performing arts are ephemeral textual forms that often elude capture and are difficult to access. While libraries and archives have developed metadata that enables research into collections of written texts, little has been done for texts that encompass space and time: dance, theatre, architecture, and archeology. This panel will discuss issues and possible solutions to the development of controlled vocabularies for, and systematic description of, performance arts objects: both tactile and ephemeral.
