To mark the centenary of its publication in 1916, Bloomsday in Melbourne (now in its 23rd year) celebrates James Joyce’s most popular and user-friendly novel,  A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, with an original adaptation for the stage, directed by Wayne Pearn.

Joyce was only 22 when he began Portrait, and it took him even longer to compose this short and compelling work than it did to create the masterpiece that is Ulysses.

Matt Dorning is Stephen Dedalus, a rebel without a pause, a rebel with a cause. Pearn describes him as ‘coltish, challenging, full of sturm und drang, and very funny’. Can Stephen realize his exhilarating (over-reaching?) ambition to fly free, and make the world afresh, to live in a different relationship to his body, his society, knowledge itself, and his art?

Celebrating James Joyce since 1994

The Bloomsday in Melbourne (Australia) festival occurs annually on 16 June.
It celebrates James Joyce’s novel Ulysses – its humour, its challenge to rethink the world, its experimentalism.

It aims to show that Ulysses is for everyone.
