Sirin (Hope is the Thing with Feathers)

Sirin (Hope is the Thing with Feathers)

Newtons Ladder


A wandering explorer woos a nesting Sirin with roses and during an aerial courtship their relationship of prey and predator changes. Drawn from the ancient myths of man falling in love with beautiful half human creatures this love story is an up to date expression of the innate human ambition to capture, possess and tame the extraordinary.

Through narrative aerial choreography two compelling performers create an involving and emotional impact through visceral and ambitious images that stay in the memory.
