Description

The Two Grenadiers

In this ResearchWorks session, Susan Rutherford (University of Manchester) and Laura Tunbridge (University of Oxford) ask what shapes our responses as audiences to sung performance? What determines conventions in the way singers present their interpretations not just vocally, but also through gesture, physicality and facial expressivity?

Using historical examples, they will trace historical developments in performance practice and illuminate differing relationships between the singer and dramatic modes of expression.


Part of the Hands, Gestures, Voices Series.

Chaired by Dr Ceri Owen, this series of talks looks at the relationship between songs and the experience of the people who perform them. Presented in collaboration with The Oxford Song Network: Poetry and Performance, at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities.
