SIREN TOUR - Bregenz

SIREN TOUR - Bregenz

14 March

Co-produced by Pontus Lidberg Dance, Danish Dance Theatre, Festival Oriente Occidente, Stavros Niarchos Foundation Culture Center, through an exclusive grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation


SIREN is named after the mythical creatures who lured sailors with their song, compelling them to throw themselves into the sea. Only Ulysses managed to resist their call, by plugging his crew’s ears with wax and tying himself to the mast of his ship. The work considers Ulysses’ desire that can never be fulfilled, and the Siren’s song as a source of creative impulse. The work does not retell the myth, or any story, but is inspired by its themes of longing, creativity, and, unexpectedly, solitude.
