Lucia, Sweet Dancer

Lucia, Sweet Dancer

Reassessing the artistic significance and legacy of Lucia Joyce as an artist in her own right, with Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter) as Lucia Joyce and a cast featuring Olwen Fouéré, Bairbre Ni Chaoimh, Michael James Ford and Elliot Moriarty.

Aligning Lucia’s promising modern dance career at the heart of 1920s Parisian avant-garde with Yeats’ & de Valois’ Abbey Theatre Ballets, we ask, what if the overlooked daughter of the famous writer had been allowed to fulfill her promise?

Interviewees: Carol Loeb Shloss (Lucia Joyce, To Dance in the Wake); Simon O’Connor director of www.MoLI.ie; Olwen Fouéré creator of Riverrun; David Norris & Robert Nicholson.

Producer/Presenter : Deirdre Mulrooney
