Canterbury Tales Remixed
Canadian artist Baba Brinkman was recently at OSU performing his Canterbury Tales Remixed after a successful run off Broadway. He does a lot of educational projects, including a guide to evolutionary theory and a teaching aid for MBA students. He uses a lot of pop culture references to draw parallels between these old stories and contemporary society, and emphasizes the timelessness/universality of story telling. You can listen to some of the tracks online (including his retellings of Gilgamesh and Beowulf). Enjoy!
