“Beowulf” – the epic book in a multi-media performance with Bagby playing the Anglo-Saxon harp and singing/reciting the Beowulf story. Bagby will be joined by Experiential Designer and Adobe Creative Resident Craig Winslow who will bring the colorful characters and narrative to life through the use of projection.
Watch as Bagby summons music’s magical capacity to travel across time and bring narrative to life. Accompanied by a six-string lyre, the riveting adventures of the legendary warrior Beowulf in his quest to defeat the horrific monster Grendel will be recited, chanted, and sung in the original Old English in which this illustrious 11th-century masterpiece was written. This production, critically acclaimed for almost two decades, is a rare chance to encounter one of the most popular texts in western literature as it was originally performed.
