Yes and Yes
Liz Roche Company
Commissioned by Solas Nua
Co-produced by Liz Roche Company and Solas Nua in Washington D.C., in partnership with Cork Opera House

Yes and Yes takes its title from the final episode of Joyce's Ulysses, which both begins and ends with a “yes”: “…yes I said yes I will Yes,” the famous last words of the novel, exclaimed by Molly Bloom. The dance journeys through the chapters of Ulysses, exploring its sensuality, absurdity, release, and resignation in movement with four extraordinary dancers and through film, sound, and design.

"Like Joyce did with words, Roche plays with the infinite choreographic possibilities of movement ... A wonderful, dreamlike experience.”—THE ARTS REVIEW 

Featuring Sarah Cerneaux, Grace Cuny, Toon Theunissen, and Mufutau Yusuf
