Medieval Delights at the Fringe

Coming soon in the 2012 Dunedin Fringe Festival: a Dunedin Medieval and Renaissance Society production SEX *DEATH*MAGIC: Renaissance Poetry Unbound

Before reality TV, there was poetry: illicit sex and thwarted desire, queer romance and crossdressing, witchcraft, suicide, and bloody murder; Renaissance poets saw it all. Celebrate International Poetry Day with the verse of Spenser, Wyatt, Marlowe, and Shakespeare as you’ve never quite heard it before.

Mistress Hilary Norris presides over a motley but talented troupe of actors, dancers, and musicians.

Also in the 2012 Fringe Festival, featuring medieval musicians and a poetic narrative in blank verse:
The Fire of Life: A Journey to the Underworld and Back

FireBugs present a spectacular theatre production using fire, dance and music in a show for all ages. The show explores the birth, theft and epic recapturing of the Fire of Life. Come with us on a quest to the Underworld to return the flame to its rightful place.
