Sirens – Thursday 13th June 7.30pm – Stantonbury Theatre, Milton Keynes
‘And before you can say damaged male ego, we’re holed up on a four foot square rock for the rest of eternity…’
When three Greek women defy the want of Zeus and are cursed with a deadly voice, the famous myth of the Sirens is born. But when they find out that the truth about them may have been a bit more than ‘tweaked’, they are catapulted to Hastings beach in 2019 with one mission: rewrite history.
Using breathtaking visual storytelling, stunning projections and a lot of feathers, Zoo Co’s award winning show Sirens sticks two fingers up at gender expectations and asks, when your voice is silenced, how do you stand up and shout out?
Sirens is creatively captioned and BSL inclusive, with a Deaf and hearing cast. We welcome d/Deaf and hearing audiences.
