Ulysses by James Joyce: An oratorio, an ode to daily life, episodes 11 & 18
The performance is based on the episodes Nausicaa and Penelope from Joyce’s magnum opus and will be presented in the form of an oratorio for a popular male singer, a female actor/primadonna, a sexy chorus of women (Sirens) and a music band. Elephas Tiliensis have conceived the performance as a ‘philosophic stand-up comedy’ with Penelope’s figure in the centre, mocking the image of Odysseus/Ulysses, which personifies the patriarchal way of thinking and being in the West.
