As St. Patrick’s Day comes around once more, the general celebration of all things Irish (or even vaguely Irish) brings with it a burst of notices and activity around Joyce’s work.  Some of the highlights include:

-In early 2010 artist Stephen Crowe began an ambitious and fascinating project entitled Wake in Progress in which he is illustrating sections of Finnegans Wake.  View some of the work here.

-From November 8th through December 9th  The Court Theater will be holding performances of a musical adaptation of Joyce’s “The Dead.”  Music and lyrics by Shaun Davey and Richard Nelson will provide an interesting take on Joyce’s famous story.  Charles Newell will direct.  Access more information on this and other of Court Theater’s productions here.

-Brigid McLeer’s art project, “One + One,” began on March 9th and will run through April 26th at Highlanes Gallery on Saint Lawrence St. in Drogheda.  McLeer’s project is part video, part drawing and weaves together diverse sources including French filmmaker, Jean Luc Goddard’s work and Joyce’s Ulysses.  Find more information on the exhibit here.
