Courtship gone awry: Fia Guilemina for Four
- Countess Judith de Northumbria ( Rachel Lorenz)
- Main Hall on Thursday at 3:30PM
Set to a popular, somewhat bawdy French chanson, this dance seems to tell the tale of a double courtship gone somewhat pear-shaped. This is doubtlessly one of the most complex choreograhies that exist in the 15th century, but the challenge only makes it all the more interesting, and its mastery can be utterly elating. This dance will put to practice all six key elements of the 15th c. Italian repertory: misura, memory, air, partitioning the ground, manner and movement.
