Bloomsday 2013 was a great success in Pula including being part of the worldwide reading of Ulysses. We are looking forward to even more in 2014.
In the meantime, Igor Jurilj will be presenting James Joyce, who visited Fazana and Brijuni on his 23rd birthday with a special set of panels on Joyce’s life at the Istarsko – Irski (Istria – Ireland) Festival Fazana on Saturday the 14th of September 2013. With Bloomsday being such a pure Joyce festival we wanted to add our part by being a stepping stone or “Joyce for beginners” event along with traditional music and dance as our centre piece. The Joyce event will start at 10.30am and run until 12.00.
2013 Sees the second running of the Pula “Bloomsday” festival celebrating the life and seminal work of James Joyce – Ulysses. It is celebrated around the world on June the 16th by those who have a passion for the work of James Joyce – Joyceans. The festival was conceived and founded in 2012 by Zagreb based Joycean – Igor Jurilj. Paul was invited as an Irish writer to be part of the festival’s first year and now assists in bringing a wider range of cultural activities to the event including Irish dance workshops and performances.
Joyce lived and worked in Pula teaching English to Austrian military officers and with his wife Nora Barnacle, visited the Brijuni Islands on the occasion of his 23rd birthday in 1905.Imagery compliments of Igor Jurilj
