Event description

Description

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 Early 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, and the Humanities Commons.
