Description

In this performance session, four performers of medieval narrative will present a lai and/or fables of Marie de France. In the past, these performances have involved period music, new translations, and/or dramatic readings in the original language; and we expect this tradition to continue. As Joyce Coleman, Evelyn Birge Vitz, and others have shown, hearing a text read aloud or watching its performance both mirrors the way the work would have been consumed in the Middle Ages and enhances our modern understanding. Our attendees regularly report that their perception of the work changes over the course of the session.
