Directed and Performed by Neal Kosaly-Meyer
The premiere performance of Part I, Chapter 4 in Kosaly-Meyer’s ongoing Finnegans Wake Project. Presented with carefully considered sets, props, sound design, and with acute attention to musical detail. Chapter 1 is an overture, and follows the rules of music (more or less); Chapter 2 is fairly straightforward storytelling (mostly). Chapter 3 is a fog of dream and the unconscious, the proper realm and idiom of the Wake, Joyce’s book of the dark. Chapter 4, still a bit foggy, completes the first large structural cycle of the book.
