Event details
“Do you want me, Corpse-father, to tally up well

ancient tales of folk, from the first I recall?”

--from Völuspá, trans.  Andy Orchard

The team that produced Beowulf:  The Event welcomes you to immerse yourself in the world of The Poetic Edda, a sweeping collection of Norse mythological heroic tales, written down in the 13th century, from an oral tradition that is much older.

This is a performance immersion event, set in 11th century Iceland.  We will gather in the hall for a day of performance, as 30 storytellers from six kingdoms breathe life into the ancient verse.

The source material is a product of its time.  The stories depict prejudices of that time.  They were wrong then, and are wrong now, and do not reflect the views of the event staff.  We are presenting the material as is, because to do otherwise would be to act as if those prejudices never existed.

There will be no children’s or martial activities.

Those interested in performing, should contact the Artistic Director, Master Toki Skáldagörvir edda.director@ilk.org.
