Now more contemporary and narrower, our company presents Soliloquy, the "comeback performance" of Debris company after a longer period of time. This dramatic dance performance/solo is a short stage adaptation of the last chapter of James Joyce’s world famous novel - Ulysses, made famous by the revolutionary manner of introducing the "stream of consciousness" to the world of literature - appearing in the punctuation-lacking monologue of Molly Bloom, a concert singer and wife of an advertising agent from Ireland, Leopold Bloom.
A free stream of feelings, thoughts, fragments of memory and fantasy of the state of falling asleep mixed with elements from the real world; they all fill the stage just like an empty page in Joyce’s novel. The literary effect and archetype of this work are an inspiration respecting empty pages in an imaginary book, crossed-out sentences and never-sung music passages in place of words.
Soliloquy is the courtesy of James Joyce, his writing walking the line between consciousness and subconsciousness, an experiment of words and motion, a rhythmical and ritualistic confession in the new age that surrounds us, a flood of emotions, a continuous sadness, a loss of context and an eternal discontent. Our interest was piqued predominantly by a fascination with Molly’s womanly essence and her "burdensome dream", or a contemplation in the state of falling asleep, amidst the everyday reality unlike any other day or night wherever else in the world lived by whichever one of us. It dissects subconsciousness and a reality full of little everyday cataclysms, disappointments, jealousy, envy, trifling details and fluent bigotry.
