Austrialian performance art producer Vitalstatistix is presenting a massive theater project based on Ulysses. The 18 part, ten-hour performance will be put on by The Rabble, a performance troupe based in Victoria, which plans to reinterpret Joyce’s work in radical new ways. The performance will use the Gilbert schema as a guide, but will introduce provocative differences into Joyce’s narrative. For example, Leopold/Odysseus will be a female part, and the novel’s quotidian events will be given operatic weight. The Rabble will also experiment with different media forms throughout the performance, including installation art and video production. The performance will run from 26 October-November 6.  Access more information here.
