Ulysses Journey 2022 Commission Opportunities
The 100th anniversary on 2 February 2022 of the publication of Ulysses by James Joyce will be celebrated all over the world. In light of the importance to Dublin and Ireland of this milestone in world literature, the Contemporary Music Centre is planning an international celebration: Ulysses Journey 2022.
Given Ulysses’ connections with Ireland, France (where it was published) and Hungary (through the character Leopold Bloom), Ulysses Journey 2022 will start in Dublin on 2 February 2022, and will journey to Belfast and back to Dublin in early February 2022, onwards to Budapest for Bloomsday 2022, and will end in Paris on 18 June 2022.
A number of new works by composers from Ireland, which are inspired by, reflect on and/or respond to Ulysses, together with films by filmmakers from Ireland to accompany these new works, will be co-commissioned by CMC and the Centre Culturel Irlandais, with support from the Department of Foreign Affairs and One Dublin One Book 2022, specially for the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ulysses.
