Wait! What? Yes.
Beowulf is as relevant today as it ever was—fear, leadership, loyalty, pride, generosity, and fate. This medieval epic tale will be told using modern technology.
The bardic fires have been extinguished for a time. While the performers of the known world are sheltering in their homes, they will bring Beowulf into yours.
A two part event directed by Master Toki Skáldagörvir, produced and performed by a stellar group from across the Known World. Part one will be performed live on the evening of Saturday, November 14 at 7:30 pm; part two on Sunday, November 15 at 2 pm. The East Kingdom Webministry has graciously agreed to support the livestream of this event via its YouTube channel as the performers gather via Zoom.
