Another week is upon us, and this week it’s all about Ulysses. Yes, that’s right, Joyce is out of copyright about fifteen minutes, and already we’ve had a version of Dubliners with The Dead to come later in the year.
Art –Alice Maher‘s show at IMMA (Earlsfort Terrace) is really impressive, especially some of the video peices and is heavily recommended. The Sidney Nolan exhibition is at IMMA Kilmainham, quite fitting with the jail up the road for the paintings of Ned Kelly. Merlin James is at the Kerlin. David Quinn is at the Taylor Gallery. Hibernation (Group show) starts at the Oliver Sears on Thursday.
Theatre – Dorian Gray continue at the Abbey and it’s run has been extended despite some average reviews! Ulysses starts tomorrow night at the Project, and continues until Saturday. This is hugely ambitious and I’m fascinated to see what it comes out like. Expect a review on Wednesday.
Movies – The Polish Film Festival starts at the IFI on Thursday and runs for till Sunday. There’s also a good few bits and pieces at the Lighthouse, with a series of short movies, and the Paul Thomas Anderson season. They’re also starting a bookclub, which is a lovely idea. Read the book, then watch the movie, and say that the book is better in the discussion afterwards!
Gigs – It’s a pretty good week for gigs, and I’d have to recommend the grump Mark Kozelek and Lee Fields.
