A Finnegans Wake Project 2016 (Oct. 15 and Nov. 19 at Gallery 1412; Dec. 17 at Chapel Performance Space)

Neal Kosaly-Meyer has embarked upon a 17-year project to learn and perform each chapter of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake from memory, and with acute attention to the musical detail of this remarkable text.

For the third year Kosaly-Meyer is presenting a series of performances of the Wake chapters worked up thus far. Chapters 1 and 2 will be presented at Gallery 1412 in October and November, and Chapter 3 will receive its first public performance in December at Chapel Performance Space.

The Gallery 1412 presentations will be intimate chamber performances attuned to this unique space. The performance at Chapel Performance Space will be more formal and theatrical, exploiting the acoustics and evocative qualities of the Chapel, along with more nuanced and designed sets, props, lighting and sound.
A Finnegans Wake Project proceeds from the conviction that Finnegans Wake is best experienced and understood when read or heard aloud, and that such reading and hearing will best occur if the text has been learned by heart, and rehearsed with care, in the same way a musician prepares a complex piece of music for performance.
