Hemispheric Institute Digital Video Library (HIDVL)
Firefox 3 has problems streaming QuickTime video when there are multiple tabs open in a single window. If you are using Firefox 3 to view the HIDVL website, we strongly recommend streaming the videos in a separate Firefox window (click on "File" in the top menu and select "New Window").
The HIDVL is a unique collection of videos of theater and performance art productions throughout the Americas. Works include experimental and collective theater, political, feminist and queer performance, interviews, among other works. The searchable database also includes a collection of artist profiles with biographies and bibliographies for further reading.
