Yes and Yes

Town Hall Theatre

To mark 100 years since the first publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses, one of the most important works of modern literature, Solas Nua in Washington D.C, in partnership with Cork Opera House, commissioned choreographer Liz Roche and her company to create a brand-new dance piece, Yes and Yes.

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. The dance journeys through the episodes of Ulysses, exploring the sensuality, absurdity, release, and resignation of the book in movement with four extraordinary dancers and through film, sound, and design.

Yes and Yes’ US and Irish debuts in 2022 were met with sold out shows and standing ovations. It’s time for Yes and Yes to come back and give Dublin Dance Festival audiences a flavour of Liz Roche Company.

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.
