The Marlowe Festival, planned to place over a week in Rheims and Paris in May 2022, will celebrate and engage with the works, life, and legacy of the poet-dramatist Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593). The Festival features live performances of Marlowe’s plays, two academic conferences, and a series of special events including walking tours, lectures, and site visits. From 16-18 May, the Festival will be housed in Rheims for an international conference themed around ‘Marlowe and the Topicality of Textual Encounters’. Next the Festival moves to Paris from 19-21 May, for a second international conference that marks and commemorates the 450th anniversary of the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre and includes a live performance of Marlowe’s The Massacre At Paris: ‘Representations and Uses of the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, in Europe and Beyond (1572-2022)’. The Marlowe Festival is a collaboration between researchers from Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle, Sorbonne Université, and the University of Kent.
