LVDVS NEMESIS Gig in Hamburg, Germany, April 26, 2008

Avete Amici,

I'm happy to announce the first public gig of the gladiator troupe LVDVS NEMESIS at the Helms-Museum in Hamburg-Harburg, Germany on April 26, 2008 for the Long Night of the Museums. The program in German you will find here:

It would be great if one or the other could make it. Of course I will keep you updated on all future events.

Valete

As requested here are some action pics from our first gig at the Helms-Museum in Hamburg-Harburg on April 26, 2008. It was our first public appearance.

We were accompanied musically by two members of the group Musica Romana which added a lot to our performance though during the fight I just heard that there was some music but did not know exactly what. I was so freaking nervous that most of that evening appears in a blur.

Cool! Cleopatra, how does one learn how to fight with a sword these days?

And did you make most of your own stuff? {I'm guessing your swords and helmets were purchased}.

Your gladiator troup is becoming more and more interesting all the time!

Gladii Gladiatoresque

Postby Valerius Claudius Iohanes on Fri May 02, 2008 7:27 pm

Salvete, et Cleopatra Aelia et omnes -

This is an interesting question - how, where, with whom does one study Roman swordplay? Cleopatra Aelia, where did you start?

The topic takes me back to when my love of things ancient and my fantasy-world love of swords and combat prompted me to take fencing lessons for a while. Sheesh, utterly unaggressive and uncompetitive, utterly lacking in boldness, I was a total washout.

Yet the preoccupation persists. My youth gone and my present life one of a paterfamilias minor, and little time or money to spare, why am I still drawn to the idea of armoring up, drawing gladius, and hazarding life and limb?

Atque etiam, Cleopatra Aelia, if I might ask, why are you drawn to combat/competition? What forms your desire for it?

Valete.
