This article provides an in-depth description of the many layers and processes involved in constructing a digital dance archive; Siobhan Davies RePlay. Three years after the archive went ‘live’ the article revisits its development and explores the impact of the archival process on the artists and researchers involved. It traces the ways in which a digital archive can be seen as an extension of the artist's work, reflecting back on the artist's creative methods and influencing future projects. By looking out to other digital dance projects the article assesses the ways in which digital archives contribute to a growing number of digital dance resources and build a new environment for the making, teaching, viewing and appreciation of dance.
