Description

In this performance session, performers will present the lai of Marie de France entitled Chaitivel. As in years past, the panel invites performers who revive the lai by using period music, new translations, and dramatic performances in the original language. As Evelyn Birge Vitz and others argue, hearing a text read aloud or watching its performance mirrors the way the work was received in the Middle Ages and enhances our modern understanding. Attendees regularly report that their perception of the work changes over the course of the session. The objective is to generate discussion about the use of voice, gesture, and music in the embodiment of the text – and how its performance reveals nuances of meaning that may be lost in silent reading.
