A Continuation :
Saturday at 8 PM
Chapter 1 is an overture, and follows the rules of music (more or less); Chapter 2 is farily straightforward storytelling ( mostly). In Chapter 3 we enter the fog of dream and the unconscious, the proper realm and idiom of the Wake, Joyce’s book of the dark. Part I, Chapters 1-4 of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake constitute the first large structural component of the book. This fall and winter, Neal Kosaly-Meyer will perform those first four chapters from memory, with acute attention to the work’s musical detail. The first three chapters are
“chamber” performances, all at Gallery 1412. The next performance will be Chapter 3 on Saturday, November 18. Chapter 4, this year’s premiere, will be performed with lights, sound design and theatrical/liturgical costume and staging at Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center on Saturday December 16.
All performances, sliding admission, $5-$15
