An artistic encounter in the CCI led to this collaboration between former artists in residence Ronan Guilfoyle, ‘the godfather of the Irish contemporary jazz scene’ (The Irish Times) and Janet Moran, actor, playwright and director. ‘A Bit Of A Peregrination’ is an extended composition and spoken-word piece, commissioned by the CCI and inspired by James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’. It is a unique work that combines Ronan Guilfoyle’s rhythms of West African influence rhythms with passages from the book performed by Janet Moran, as well as featuring a group of French and Irish contemporary jazz musicians. Delving into the inner world of Joyce’s classic novel, ‘A Bit Of A Peregrination’ sheds light onto it in a very different way.
