In “Come and See Me, I’m a Crossword Puzzle” we mark the 40th anniversary of Lucia Joyce’s December 1982 death on the eve of her Saint’s day, in Northampton, England. In the Julian calendar, Saint Lucia’s day coincided with the Winter Solstice. Join our Saint Lucia’s Day procession celebrating light and love in the dark heart of winter as, anchored by verbatim text, we highlight Lucia’s overlooked creativity, and artistic achievements. Add your candle to the annual Joyce family Saint Lucia’s Day ritual, in honour of our misunderstood artistic ancestor, Lucia Anna Joyce. Through dance, discussion, theatre and exhibition, Deirdre Mulrooney has created a beautiful evening to celebrate Lucia Joyce with performances by dancer Lucia Kickham and actor Kathleen Warner Yeates.
The event is part supported by an Arts Council Agility Award.
Thanks to Aoife Carey, Kathleen Warner Yeates, Darina Gallagher and the team at the James Joyce Centre, Philip Sicker, Fritz Senn, Alison Fraser of University at Buffalo Special Collections, Caitríona Yeats, National Library of Ireland, and Seán Sweeney.
