Bloom Screening + Introduction by Director Sean Walsh

 

A vivid adaptation of Joyce’s celebrated Ulysses, Bloom is a rich costume drama about Leopold Bloom (Stephen Rea), his ribald wife, Molly (Angeline Ball), and the young intellectual Stephen Dedalus (Hugh O’Conor) going about their daily business.

In a bold move, director Sean Walsh breaks up the order of Joyce’s narrative, rearranging events – such as Molly’s famous closing soliloquy – to create a more accessible narrative than that of the novel. Characters have breakfast, attend a funeral and discuss literature, with Bloom and Stephen’s paths slowly converging as the film builds to a surrealist climax. For all his bold deviations from his source, director Sean Walsh holds firm to Joyce’s celebration of the ordinary, with earthy sexuality central in this playful and creative retelling.

The Three Graces of the Dublin Musical World

 
Three Graces.png

A Feast of Joycean Music and Readings

Join us in St. Andrew's Church, known to Joyceans as ‘All Hallows Church’, and indulge in our Italian menus influenced by James Joyce. Menu 1 includes Primi and Secondi courses from ‘The Dead’ accompanied with a glass of ‘The Lass of Aughrim’ by our Tenor, Simon Heapes, topped off with a Dolci course of Balfe’s ‘When Other Lips’. Menu 2 includes a Secondi course of the famous Gunn Brothers with a side order of the Greenore Centre Choir performing ‘Sweet Rosie O'Grady’ and ‘Daisy Bell’. Menu 2 is concluded with a Dolci course of our own ‘Three Graces’ - Rose Byrne, Gillian Pepper and Carmel Heapes performing ‘Seaside Girls’.

Many surprises await as you feast on the words of Joyce and drink in the musical melodies that accompany Joyce's words. The finale is ‘Love's Old Sweet Song’ found in the ‘Lotus Eaters’ chapter of Ulysses in which Joyce immortalised both the song and ‘All Hallows Church’. Thus, like in Dubliners, we conclude that “if they are gone beyond recall, let us hope, at least, that in gatherings such as this we shall still speak of them with pride and affection, still cherish in our hearts the memory of those dead".

Bloomsday and the Lord Mayor's Coach at the Mansion House

 
Coach.png

Referred to in Ulysses when Leopold Bloom thinks of the “lord mayor in his gingerbread coach”, the beautiful Lord Mayor’s Coach dates back to 1791 and was made in Dublin by William Whitton of Dominick Street. It was restored in 1975 by Dublin City Council, Inchicore Railway Works and art conservators from the National Gallery and National Museum. On Saturday 16 June, it will be on display on the forecourt of the Mansion House – a rare chance to see the beautiful detail of the Coach up close. The Coach is used at least twice a year when it leads the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin and brings the Lord Mayor to the RDS to open the Dublin Horse Show. The Mansion House will be open to view and there will be readings and musical performances throughout the day to celebrate Ulysses.

Pat Liddy.png

This tour is ideal as a first introduction to James Joyce and will celebrate his life and work by walking through the streets of the city he immortalised in his groundbreaking novel, Ulysses. The route will partly follow the book’s main character, Leopold Bloom, in his famous wanderings in the year 1904. Dublin has changed enormously since then, but we will still encounter many of Bloom’s intriguing stops or indeed places associated with Joyce himself along the way.

"When I die, Dublin will be written in my heart." - James Joyce

On 16 June 1904, Glasnevin Cemetery was the venue for the funeral of the fictional Paddy Dignam, attended by Joyce’s protagonist Leopold Bloom in Ulysses. Today, it’s not unusual to see dedicated Joyceans make the annual trip to Glasnevin in hired horse-drawn carriages; some even rent a hearse for full authenticity.

This year to celebrate this historic date Glasnevin Cemetery Museum will run a series of events including a Joycean themed breakfast & lunch in the Tower Café, a reading of the ‘Hades’ episode of Ulysses performed by the Joycestagers, and a Joycean tour of the cemetery itself.

10am - 3pm: Special Joycean Breakfast and Lunch in the Tower Café.

11.30am: Re-enactment of the funeral procession of Paddy Dignam from the ‘Hades’ episode of Ulysses.

12.15pm: A Joycean Tour of the heart of the Hibernian necropolis, Glasnevin Cemetery, which has many significant links to Joyce’s life and writing.

Dalkey Castle.png

A concert performance of excerpts from a new Irish opera based on James Joyce's masterpiece

Music by Eric Sweeney

Words by James Joyce

Adapted by Andrew Basquille

Produced by Andrea Basquille

Yes, Ulysses is 'operable'. We haven’t changed a word so as to be true to the musicality of Joyce's language. We set out to give the audience an experience of the epic quality of the book in an original way. Eric's bold and dramatic settings complement Joyce's words beautifully. The interior monologues and the 'stream of consciousness' passages lend themselves to work as beautiful and expressive arias. He draws on many of the classical opera, Irish traditional and music hall references in the book so as to create a compelling and challenging work. Joyce’s love of opera is well documented and he regularly attended operas wherever he lived. He will be with us in spirit.

Show begins at 8pm on 15 & 16 June.

Bloomsday at The Lilliput Press: Celebrating the Launch of the Mookse and the Gripes by Thomas McNally

 
Lilliput.png

The Mookse and the Gripes is James Joyce’s peculiar and hilarious re-telling of Aesop’s ancient fable of ‘The Fox and the Grapes’, as presented in Finnegans Wake (1939). This book consists of over one hundred colour illustrations by Irish artist Thomas McNally that run alongside Joyce’s text. Each illustration is based on a line from the fable; taken together, they help to interpret and illuminate the work. Almost eighty years on from the original publication, this illustrated edition of Joyce’s fable offers to readers a comedic, much needed entry-point into Finnegans Wake, and to its appreciation.

Join us for a night of Joycean words and music to celebrate the launch of this wonderful new book, brought to life by special guest speakers. All washed down with some gorgonzola and Burgundy.
