Bloomsday in Melbourne presents
JAMES JOYCE HITS TRADES HALL; their 9th annual celebration of Ulysses
Bloomsday tramps the worn steps of the Trades Hall to follow the
progress of James Joyce's enterprise bargaining case. Listen to what the
workers at Trades Hall and some from the slums of Dublin have to say to
him. This one-day festival will raise many questions in different media:
theatricals, music, mime, seminar papers, and even in the form of a
musical (Ulysses Cantabile, a musical in four movements) in the evening.
It employs a cast of several dozen professional actors, musicians,
theatre directors, as well as a legion of once-a-year readers. The
seminar will feature papers by Ross McMullin (on the first Labor
government anywhere in the world in Australia in 1904, the auspicious
year of the setting of Ulysses), Jim Cusack (on Union conditions in
Ireland in 1904), and Philip Harvey (on Joyce and work in Ulysses). Time
to Re-Joyce!
from 10:30am until late, Sunday June 16
All Day Tickets $65, tickets also available for individual events

"There are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns - that
is to say, there are things that we now know we don't know but there are
also unknown unknowns. There are things we do not know we don't know . .
. And each year we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns."
- Donald Rumsfeld, United States Defence Secretary
