Ulysses for children: has the world gone mad?... Branar has gone and done it.
Ulysses for Children?
Yes, Ulysses for Children.
James Joyce’s epic story of one day in one city is brought to life in this inventive new show, bringing Ireland’s most notorious book to audiences aged 8 and upwards, and to all those who haven’t got around to reading it yet.
Combining live performance, intricate paper design, an original score and Joyce’s odyssey, this is theatre that will excite both young and old.
Originally commissioned by and produced as part of Ulysses 2.2, a collaborative project between ANU, Landmark Productions and Museum of Literature Ireland.
Ulysses 2.2 was a year-long, nationwide programme of thrilling new artistic experiments in 2022, created by a rich and diverse gathering of established and emerging Irish artists, presented in a range of live performances, digital commissions and installations.
Designed for children aged 8+ and their adults
Duration: approx. 35 minutes
Along with this stage version, on 16 June 2022, children throughout Ireland were invited to take part in My Bloomsday to celebrate and tell us about their Bloomsday, 100 years on from the book’s original publication date. This included a film version of the show which can still be viewed on the Ulysses 2.2 website
