By David Bolger

9-20 November 2022 

 

“O, Rocks!”  In a meaty delicacy that ignites the senses, David Bolger’s evocative response to Ulysses Episode 4 probes dual realities to create an experimental dance performance installation of unsettling, voluptuous beauty.  Each audience member will be treated to a unique live and 180° virtual reality experience, designed to linger long after they have left the landmark building of 42 Fairview Strand.

Commissioned by and presented in collaboration with Ulysses2.2 – funded through an OPEN CALL award from Arts Council Ireland.  Find out more at www.ulysses22.ie

ULYSSES 2.2 | 1 BOOK. 1 YEAR. 18 ARTISTIC EXPERIMENTS.

To mark a century of Ulysses, three of Ireland’s most innovative arts organisations and practitioners – ANU, Landmark Productions and MoLI have come together for Ulysses 2.2, a year-long, nationwide odyssey of creative responses to the 18 episodes that chronicle an ordinary day in the life of Leopold Bloom.  

 

ABOUT OUR COLLABORATORS

ANU are devoted to an interdisciplinary approach to performance / installation that cross-pollinates visual art, dance and theatre in an intensely collaborative way. ANU create works of art that continually push the boundaries and conventions of performance and installation. They aim to present unconventional work, concentrating on creating innovative exchanges with audiences.

Landmark Productions is one of Ireland’s leading theatre producers. We produce wide-ranging work in Ireland, and share that work with international audiences.

Led by Anne Clarke since the company’s foundation in 2003, our productions have received multiple awards and have been seen in leading theatres in London, New York and beyond.

Our 18 world premieres (and counting) include new plays by major Irish writers such as Enda Walsh and Mark O’Rowe, featuring a roll-call of Ireland’s finest actors, directors and designers.

In Ireland, we produce a wide range of ambitious work – mostly plays, but occasionally operas and musicals, too – in theatres ranging from the 66-seat New Theatre to the 1,254-seat Olympia. We co-produce regularly with a number of partners, including, most significantly, Galway International Arts Festival and Irish National Opera.

The company has received numerous awards, including – at the Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards – the Judges’ Special Award in recognition of sustained excellence in programming, and for developing imaginative partnerships to bring quality theatre to the Irish and international stage, and a Special Tribute Award for Anne Clarke, for her work as a producer of world-class theatre in the independent sector in Ireland.

With the support of the Arts Council and Culture Ireland – and with the backing of individual investors for our commercial productions – we aim to support artists to make their best work, and to make sure that work is seen as widely as possible.
