“Ulysses in the World” Symposium at Georgetown University

10 September

I am delighted to be invited to contribute to a panel discussion on James Joyce and Dance alongside Dr. Michelle Clayton of Browne University, and choreographer Liz Roche, after the world premiere of Liz’s dance production “Yes and Yes”, inspired by Ulysses at Solas Nua, Washington DC, on September 9th.  This day long symposium features an impressive line-up of the world’s top Joyceans, and I am looking forward to the entire day’s discussions, as well as exploring Washington DC, where I have not been since I was 12 years old.  We stopped over on a family road trip from Toronto to Disneyland, Florida, fadó fadó, and have some Super 8 film footage of us outside the Whitehouse gates, which I may root out and share with you!

Joyce and Dance!  On top of my ongoing research into and reclamation of Lucia Joyce’s dance career, after reading Ulysses with #Ulysses80, I am really looking forward to delving further into this topic.
