THE LYRIC FEATURE
Sauntering with Joyce
In advance of Bloomsday, an audio tour of Joyce's Dublin by father and son Gerry and Daragh Dukes. From MOLI to The Shelbourne, to Westland Row and back via Kildare Street, they talk discovery, realism, politics, food and heart. They also discuss the joys of reading Joyce, alone and together. Father and son - one a veteran, the other a novice James Joyce reader - follow some of Joyce's own footsteps and those of his characters around Dublin, to see what they can tell us about what he was trying to write and how he went about it.
Gerry Dukes critic, editor and a lifelong Joyce reader, and his son Daragh, composer and audio producer, bring us on an audio tour through Dublin in a creative tribute that is informative and entertaining, reflecting on the impact Joyce's work has had. They are joined by characters voiced by actors Denise McCormack and Marty Rea and some special guests met along the way. This is a radio version of Gerry and Daragh's podcast walk and map which they have created in association with Dublin City Arts Office and The Shelbourne. A map of their walk is available from www.sauntering.ie/ from Bloomsday, June 16th.
Written and presented by Gerry Dukes and Daragh Dukes.
