Medieval Miracle, The Fall of Man
By: THE YORK PAGEANT OF THE COOPERS
Company: Our Lady's Companie
The drama of Adam, Eve and The Worm unfolds in this medieval otherworld where anything might happen and catch us unawares. This performance explores the miracle play and includes scenes from The York cycle,'Everyman' and esoteric mystery drama, 'The Chemical Wedding'.The medieval poetic language can be penetrated by modern people, aided by imagery, action, and music just as it was in the days of wagons and folk in the bawdy streets. The play is 'a play' and a strange mix of the surreal and superreal we find when old myths are embodied with our flesh, in a new way. The playing troop, 'Our Ladies Companie', comprises a fresh marriage of Actors from Artemis School of Speech and Drama and Ecole Philippe Gaulier.
