Beowulf Text and Act
Dr Felix Nobis

Performer and academic Dr Felix Nobis from the Centre for Theatre and Performance continues his long-standing investigation into the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf with a new research-performance ‘Beowulf as Text and Act’ (first presented in August 2014).


This research-performance presents a concurrent telling of Beowulf as Text and as Act. It invites the poem to speak to a modern audience and asks what it might be telling us.

Felix Nobis has spent over a decade with the poem. He has toured his translation internationally and written extensively on the history of the poem. In this performance, he tests the boundaries of the poem’s form by engaging with the work as text and act.
