Cultural heritage content can be seen as a form of leftover and when reused can open up new creative possibilities and understandings of the value of culture. These leftovers can be remixed and revived, offering a form of renewal. In particular dance practices and scholarship have become more interested over the past decade in questions about what remains, what is lost, and what can be done with remains. This interest can be seen as an answering back to Schneider's (2011) proposition about the persistence and remnant of performance. Using Europeana Space (2014-2017) a major three-year EU-Funded project, concerned with the reuse of cultural heritage, we consider the leftovers of the project now that it has ended and how these remnants open up questions around memory, the body and archives.
