We were delighted to have the film premiere of ‘A book, a bible and a beach: Wanderings in James Joyce’s Ulysses’, at Wexford Library on Saturday 15th April. 'A book, a bible and beach' is a culmination of our year long creative audiences partnership with community groups soloSIRENS, The Saol Project and Headway Ireland.
'A book, a bible and a beach: Wanderings in James Joyce's Ulysses' was shot over the summer of 2022 in tandem with the creation of our most recent dance piece Yes and Yes (commissioned by Solas Nua in Washington D.C. in partnership with Cork Opera House).
Through our Creative Audiences Programme, the project facilitators Jenny Macdonald and Liz Roche worked with community groups and collectives SAOL, soloSIRENs and Headway Ireland to create this brilliant response to our year-long creative audiences partnership.
A special thank you to our panel members Cliona O’ Farrelly, Neltah Chadamoyo and Peter Murphy who joined our Artistic Director Liz Roche for our panel discussion. And of course to the fabulous Vivian Brodie Hayes who brought this event together with Spring Moves Dance Festival, Wexford Library, The National Opera House and Wexford County Council.
