Coventry Historical Workshop: Anne Daye
Working with the Sources Workshop
A workshop on interpreting our sources for Playford dances, led by Anne Daye. Here's Anne's description of the workshop:
"The aim is to encourage more people to go back to the original documents, and develop understanding on which they can assess different interpretations of the dances.
I will cover 'Playford' as defined by Barlow in The Complete Country Dance tunes 1651 - 1728. So the day will explore the significant changes in dance culture of c.1700, concerning the introduction of the French style. Sources linked to and illuminating Playford will be discussed: manuscript sources, Lorin's 2 ms. for the French king re English country dancing, country dances published c.1700 in Feuillet notation. We will also examine selected dances in order to investigate some of the problems in turning words into dance. I expect the day to be roughly half and half practical and theoretical."
