Somewhere in the Body is a film installation centred around Lucia Joyce – a talented visual artist, musician, and dancer, and daughter of celebrated Irish writer James Joyce.
The production examines the artistic relationship between the two artists, with a particular focus on the iconic and dark tale of Finnegans Wake in which Lucia can be seen to appear in various guises. The theme of light runs through this work as it did throughout Lucia’s life whose name, taken from Saint Lucia the patron saint of the blind, is described as meaning “light giver”.
Combining exquisite performances by Katie Vickers and Colin Dunne, original light sculptures by German artist Pat Kramer, and a unique soundscape based on the Joyce family biography and Finnegans Wake, Somewhere in the Body reveals both the real and psychic spaces inhabited by Lucia and her father.
