An open rehearsal of Edda was held April 16 in the Video Studio, Media Union. Clockwise, from top left, Elizabeth Gaver plays a reconstructed ancient four-string fiddle; Christopher Caines dons finger extensions; Lena Susanne Norin rehearses her vocal performance; stage manager Courtney Goulden (left) and Chong (both from behind) direct the rehearsal; and Bagby plays the harp.
Chong is a theatre director, choreographer and video and installation artist. Actor and musician Bagby is the director and co-founder of the medieval music ensemble Sequentia. Both were visiting fellows at the Institute for the Humanities April 26. The Institute for the Humanities, School of Art and Design, UMS, and the Medieval and Early Modern Studies Program have contributed to the planning of the performances.
