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. Presented as part of Ulysses 2.2, and combining live performance, intricate paper design, an original score and Joyce’s odyssey, this is theatre that will excite young and old.
On 16 June 2022, children throughout Ireland are 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.
Along with this film version, we are delighted to announce a live show version will premiere as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival 2022. Branar will perform 8 intimate performances of You’ll See… from Thursday 16 - Sunday 19 June 2022.
