Old Norse Poetry in Performance (ONPiP) is an interdisciplinary project which aims to bring together literary scholars, actors and dramaturgs to explore the dramatic potential in the Old Norse-Icelandic poetic corpus. Triennial conferences, hosted at the University of Oxford, strech accross two days and focus on an array of themes pertaining to both eddic and skaldic poetry. Integral to the structure of each conference are performances by actors and dramaturgs seeking to put recent work on these texts into practice on a stage. Complementing such performances are papers presented by those engaged in research work on the dramatic mechanics and possibilities of Old Norse poetic texts.
