This event will explore the performance of narrative poetry from the Middle Ages through two different performances based in historical research. Tricia Postle and her Pneuma Ensemble will perform Marie de France’s Bisclavret, the lai about the werewolf, in which the narrator transforms into seven characters through mime and gesture, as informed by medieval rhetoric and iconography; an eighth is created through mask. Antoni Rossell will perform extracts from the Old Castilian epic Cantar de mio Cid, demonstrating the expressive potential of the single jongleur playing his own instrument, and alternating recital and song.
