Be Proactive “. . . A concerted effort needs to be made, while the performance is created and executed, to document as much as possible of it and to preserve the materials that the performance generates . . . it is a primary concern of repositories to actively promote or contribute to the documentation of performance.” “Information professionals cannot be passive, because, in theater, sources need to be actively created and sought, otherwise they easily disappear or they do not even come into existence.” -Francesca Marini
