Ulysses’ Living Room


Dance performance

Artus is one of the best-known theatre groups in Hungary and has been producing work consistently for many years. Based in a former factory in Budapest since 1985, the ensemble concentrates above all on the gestural, visual and musical aspects of theatre. Artus already performed at UNIDRAM in 2001 and 2004.

Ulysses’ odyssey took 20 years. In James Joyce’s novel, Leopold Bloom roams through Dublin in a single day. Ulysses’ Living Room also creates the myth of the journey and the eternal return. In the middle of a cosy living-room-like space, crammed full of sofas, tables and lamps, the travellers from afar have finally come home to tell tales of their voyages. Veering between absurd dance, poetic horseplay, object theatre and performative actions, they tell their stories in ritualised sequences, symbols and metaphors. The audience is surrounded by the action, making them part of the performance and active participants in this imaginary
