TALK and PERFORMANCE at UCI: Ending with Music: Romeo and Juliet and the Renaissance Jig
January 28, 2016 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Located at UC Irvine:
Renaissance plays, including tragedies, traditionally ended in a jig, a mixed form combining dance, music, and dramatic dialogue. Professor Matthew Smith (Azusa Pacific University) presents a lecture on Shakespeare and the jig tradition, with an emphasis on “Romeo and Juliet.” The lecture is followed by a demonstration-performance by the English Broadside Ballad Archive Performance Group from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
This special scholarship-and-performance event is co-sponsored by the Group for the Study of Early Cultures, the UCI Shakespeare Center, Illuminations, the Humanities Commons, UCSB’s Early Modern Center and UCSB’s English Broadside Ballad Archive.
