Yes and Yes

To mark 100 years since the first publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses, one of the most important works of modern literature, Solas Nua in Washington D.C, in partnership with Cork Opera House, has commissioned choreographer Liz Roche and her company to create a brand-new dance piece, Yes and Yes.

Yes and Yes takes its title from the final episode of the book which both begins and ends with a “yes”. “…yes I said yes I will Yes”; the famous last words of the book, exclaimed by Molly Bloom. The dance journeys through the episodes of Ulysses, exploring the sensuality, absurdity, release, and resignation of the book in movement with four extraordinary dancers and through film, sound, and design.

Over 70 minutes, the work maps the movement of the narrative through the streets of Dublin in 1904 and explores those same spaces and encounters today, with contemporary bodies revealing new and surprising connections.

Yes and Yes by Liz Roche is a co-production between Solas Nua in Washington D.C. and Liz Roche Company in partnership with Cork Opera House. Commissioned by Solas Nua. Kindly supported by Culture Ireland, The Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaíon, and Dublin City Council.
