Abstract

James Joyce¿s Ulysses identifies the journey from the self to communion with another as a difficult, courageous odyssey. How, the novel asks, might individuals make this journey? To explore and build upon this question, I adapted Ulysses into a play called Through Everchanging Tracks of Neverchanging Space and directed it as a site-specific theater piece in Olin Memorial Library. Through Everchanging Tracks of Neverchanging Space was a laboratory experiment: I used it to test the hypothesis that when bodies experience a fictional narrative as a physical journey through an everyday space, their simultaneous awareness of the fictional and the real heightens their sensitivity to the people and environment around them.
