Croatian director, Niksa Eterovic, is staging 3 parts of his five part “James Joyce Cycle” at two separate venues in Dublin this month.  Parts 2 and 4, called “Lucia Joyce: La Macchina della Famiglia,” and “Irishirisirischmurmelquietsch,” are playing until Saturday at the Samuel Beckett Theatre.  Part 5: “Ulysses: or The Cyclops and his Rhinoceroses” is playing at the O’Reilly Theatre from February 13-16th.  Esterovic makes Joyce’s life and work the subject of his cycles.  The performances are in multiple languages and so, like Joyce’s work, are difficult for audiences to comprehend, and they also deal with difficult aspects of Joyce’s life, such as Lucia’s mental illness and Joyce’s blindness. Thanks for the Irish Times reporting on the performances.  Read more on them here.
