Toronto: Populi Ludique Societas presents a double bill about “Problematic Men” November 16-17
Tuesday, October 29, 2019
Welcome to the twelfth century, where everyone is noble, wise and good. Except these guys…
Poculi Ludique Societas & Pneuma Ensemble present:
Babio, an elegiac comedy
Samson dux fortissime, a lai/sequence/planctus
In this performance Pneuma Ensemble takes the moral high ground and introduces two twelfth-century “negative exemplars”—characters who showed audiences how not to behave. We will meet Babio, a vile old priest in hot pursuit of his stepdaughter and Samson, the original strong-but-dumb hero. Performed in the original Latin, with supertitles, mime, mask, and period-appropriate instruments.
