Dancing in the Wake: based on the life of Lucia Joyce, daughter of James Joyce.

A play by Jan Bolwell.

Dancing in the Wake tells the lively and ultimately tragic story of an extraordinary and talented young woman who grew up in the shadow of her famous father, James Joyce.

Bolwell recreates the gaiety and creative fervour of 1920s Paris where Lucia trains to be a dancer at the studio of Isadora and Raymond Duncan, and aspires to join the famous performer, Josephine Baker in her show ‘La Revue Negre’.

The play blends drama, dance and music to tell Lucia’s story – diagnosed in her mid-twenties with schizophrenia – supported by her friend and troubled lover, the playwright Samuel Beckett, and having to struggle with the differing views of her parents, James Joyce and Nora Barnacle, on the state of her health.

Bolwell describes Dancing in the Wake as “…an exploration of what can happen to the talented child of a very famous parent in struggling for recognition and a sense of identity. Was her illness caused by this or did it compound the problem?”

Arts On Tour NZ is proud to tour this production, which opened to critical acclaim at the 2012 Wellington Fringe Festival.

Book: Golden Bay Gallery or Paradiso Video Shop.

Event takes place in the Golden Bay High School Hall.
