Tricia Postle (she)

CYRUS/ KING OF MARSEILLES/ CHORUS

Tricia Postle is a founding member of Pneuma Ensemble, a trio focusing on 12th and 13th century works on period-appropriate instruments. Pneuma's repertoire includes a range of troubadour song, minnesang (Neidhart being a group favourite) as well as Marie de France’s Anglo-Norman werewolf tale, the “Lai de Bisclaveret,” the romance “Floris and Blancheflor” in Old French and Middle English, Chaucer's "Nun's Priest's Tale," and the Latin planctus "Samson Dux Fortissime." For more information, visit www.pneumaensemble.com.

 

Tricia's personal projects include the Latin comedy "Babio" as a solo dramatic work with mask; and Marie de France's "Chaitivel" as a sung narrative, to be presented virtually at the International Congress on Medieval Studies in May 2021. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Music at Cambridge, focusing on the performance of verse narrative works in the 12th and 13th centuries in the Angevin Empire and France.

 

Tricia has had the pleasure of working with the Poculi Ludique Societas on previous occasions, including as an actor/musician with Dr. Matthew Sergi's touring shows of "Mankind" (as Nought) and "Pride of Life" (as the Bishop) and as the director of Adam de la Halle's "Game of Robin and Marion" in English translation. The current situation has few silver linings, but the chance to be involved in a production like this, with actors across four countries, has certainly been one of them!
