WINNER OF A THREEWEEKS EDITORS' AWARD 2018
You're an immortal demi-goddess whose only job is to sing and look beautiful. No, this isn't a show about Beyoncé.
Three Greek sirens find themselves washed up on Hastings beach. It's 2018, and sitting around naked on rocks is no longer en vogue. But the sirens are still cursed: any man who hears their voice dies instantly.
It's a bit of a drag.
Award-winning Zoo Co returns to stick two fingers up at gender expectations with their trademark visual storytelling, and stunning projections. Sirens is creatively captioned and BSL inclusive.

"a bold, unconventional show that will leave you wanting to raise your voice just a little louder"
"Timothy Kelly’s projections are a delight, both facilitating access for D/deaf and hard of hearing audience members and supporting the narrative in clever and amusing ways."
Fringe Review (RECOMMENDED SHOW)
"Sirens is a fist-pumping feel-good display of girl power, and a triumph of silent and silenced voices. With a fierce feminist message, this isn’t a cry for freedom, this is a collective roar of liberation."
"Sirens is a thought-provoking, and genuinely entertaining look at the unfortunate durability of gender-expectation for women"
Arthur's Seat (★★★★)
"Spunky and fun with a graphic novel aesthetic and approach to storytelling. [..] All speech is captioned, BSL is heavily used and all performances are relaxed, giving the show a wonderfully welcoming feel. The DIY design style (with excellent projections) that could give the production an amateurish feel instead ties in with their inclusiveness."
"an impressive projector"
