About the event

To mark 100 years since the first publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses, one of the most important works of modern literature, Solas Nua has commissioned leading Irish choreographer Liz Roche and her company to create a brand-new dance piece, Yes and Yes, to premiere in Washington DC this September. 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, finally name the sense of surrender implied throughout.

Yes and Yes follows the 18 episodes, suffused with curiosity, sensuality, release and resignation, and explores this in movement with four extraordinary dancers and through film, sound, and design. Dublin city and its people, today and 100 years ago, serve as the heart and the backdrop of the piece, bringing this heady mix of ideas together. Yes and Yes by Liz Roche is a co-production between Solas Nua in Washington DC and Liz Roche Company in partnership with Cork Opera House. Commissioned by Solas Nua. Kindly supported by Culture Ireland and The Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
