ZooCo’s Sirens are ready to raise their voices at Greenwich Theatre this week, challenging long-held myths and rewriting history. Leave your gender expectations at the door and check out our gallery of brand-new production shots. Time to get booking – the show has four London performances only from 20 to 23 June!
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, written by Alex Howarth, 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 (British Sign Language) inclusive.
Sirens‘ deaf and hearing cast are Fleur Angevine Rooth, Kate Donnachie, Nick Gilbert, William Grint and Rosalind Hoy. The production is directed by Florence O’Mahony, with projection design by Timothy Kelly, scenic design by Adam Bottomley and music by composer Nick Gilbert. The interpreter is Jenny Fernandez White and Rupal Chandi is BSL deaf consultant.
Sirens tours during June, including a run from 20 to 23 June 2019 at Greenwich Theatre, Crooms Hill, London SE10 8ES, with performances at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £13.50-£16. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
