'WHY DON'T THEY GO AND CREATE SOMETHING': JOYCE, ART AND INSPIRATION

'WHY DON'T THEY GO AND CREATE SOMETHING': JOYCE, ART AND INSPIRATION

Joyce’s work has long served as an inspiration not only for writers, but for artists working across the disciplines, from music and dance to visual art and theatre. This Bloomsday, we’ll be celebrating Joyce’s effect on the non-literary arts by bringing together dancer Áine Stapleton, graphic artist Sarah Bowie and musician Séan MacErlaine to discuss Joyce’s influence on their practice.

Áine Stapleton works in dance, film and music. Much of her work has been inspired by Joyce’s daughter Lucia, including her film Medicated Milk and her upcoming choreographic work Horrible Creature (see also Fringe programme), which will feed into a second film. Her work has been described by Film Ireland as "brave, provocative and deeply sensual".

Sarah Bowie is a published author/illustrator, co-founder of The Comics Lab and lover of visual storytelling. Inspired by Joyce’s Dubliners, Sarah will discuss her Dublin Bus sketchbooks, which explore the micro-moments of people’s’ daily lives.

Séan MacErlaine is a woodwind instrumentalist, composer and producer. His work intersects with folk, free improvisation, jazz and traditional music. His latest album Music for Empty Ears was released this year. In 2015, he presented Alas Awake, a site-specific multi-disciplinary homage to Joyce’s Finnegans Wake, at the Dublin International Literary Festival. Séan will perform a short piece from the project on the night.
