Abstract:

The James J. Taylor Collection of the Washington Area Performing Arts Video Archive (WAPAVA) documents a comprehensive range of theatre productions, nationally active local dance companies, and discussions featuring contemporary creative artists. Founded and sustained through the individual efforts of videographer Jim Taylor, WAPAVA began as a one-man-show on a small budget and now contains over a decade of performance practices and performing arts history in the Washington, DC area. By the time Taylor died in winter 2005, the collection he created had surpassed 400 titles and still continues to grow. Productions are found in the Libraries main catalog by doing an Advanced Search and including the term "WAPAVA" in a search field. The collection also includes programs, press kits, and other documents relating to these productions. Please contact the curator to view these additional materials.

Historical Note

The Washington Area Performing Arts Video Archives was established in 1991 by James J. Taylor with the goal of creating and preserving a videotape collection of stage performances in the Washington D.C. area. Taylor worked previously as a city planner in St. Louis, Missouri, and Cleveland, Ohio from the 1960s to 1970s. In 1977 he left his career to become a stage manager at Stage 70, which later became the Round House Theatre, in Montgomery County, Maryland. Taylor learned videography while directing programs at a public-access cable channel, and later secured permission from the Actors Equity Association in New York City to tape stage performances in Washington. His recordings of area theatre and dance performances from 1993 formed the bases and the bulk of the WAPAVA, which was originally stored in the Washington, D.C. Public Library system. In December of 2004, the archive was donated to the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library. Just prior to Taylors death on March 28, 2005, the archive was renamed the James J. Taylor Washington Area Performing Arts Video Archive in his honor.

WAPAVA is one of only two active Actors Equity-approved video performance archives in the United States. Since 1993, over 700 professional productions representing a cross-section of Washington-area theatres from large to small have been recorded. Performances are selected for consideration by an Advisory Board consisting of theatre professionals, critics, academics, and theatre lovers. Criteria for selection include historical and educational value, and special consideration is given to premieres, unique events, community interest, and contributions of particular value by performers, directors, and designers.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The James J. Taylor Washington Area Performing Arts Video Archive contains over 700 recordings documenting a comprehensive range of theatre productions, nationally active local dance companies, and discussions featuring contemporary creative artists. In addition to audio-visual materials, the collection also contains programs and recording permission forms from actors involved in recorded productions, as well as administrative documents from the WAPAVA Executive Board, select books regarding theatre and videography, and a plaque memorializing the James Taylor Archive at the University of Maryland.

Series 3: Recordings, 1988-Present (66.0 linear feet)

This series contains recordings made by WAPAVA to document stage performances in the Washington area. The series has been broken into two subseries based on whether a particular recording has been entered into the WAPAVA database. For a complete listing of the items in each subseries, please contact the curator.

Subseries 3.1: WAPAVA Recordings, 1993-Present (57.0 linear feet)

This subseries contains recordings of each performance recorded by WAPAVA. Items are identified as either an Original recording (O) or Master recording (M). Master recordings have been edited, been checked for sound and video levels, and have added production credits. Circulating DVDS are made from these Master recordings, and can be found in the Libraries by doing an Advanced Search and including the term "WAPAVA" in a search field. Originals and Masters include VHS tape, DVCAM, MiniDV, and DVD format. DVD copies of Master recordings are available for reviewing in the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library. Items in this subseries are arranged chronologically by WAP number.

The box inventory for this subseries is not currently available online. Please refer to the subseries description above for a broad description of the materials or contact the department for more information.

Subseries 3.2: Non-WAPAVA Recordings, 1988-2003 (9.0 linear feet)

This subseries contains recordings of performances that are not included in the WAPAVA database and so have not been assigned a WAP number. Items in this subseries include both productions recorded by WAPAVA videographers, as well as personal recordings made by Jim Taylor. Items include VHS tape, DVDCAM, and DVD format.

The box inventory for this subseries is not currently available online. Please refer to the subseries description above for a broad description of the materials or contact the department for more information.
