Engage in key issues in bringing dances of the past to life at this Dance Study Forum organised by the Dolmetsch Historical Dance Society on 23 and 24 March at Goldsmith’s, University of London. With increasing interest in early modern performance practice, this study day offers the chance to understand the sources and issues concerning serious dance scholars.
The keynote presentation on Saturday 23 March is Singing Simpkin and other Bawdy Jigs: recuperating the Song-and-Dance comedies on the Shakespearean Stage. Relating to a forthcoming publication, Dr. Roger Clegg (de Montfort University Drama Department), Lucy Skeaping (broadcaster and early music singer and performer) with Dr. Anne Daye (TrinityLaban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, dance researcher) will present new insights into a significant element of the stage repertoire.”
