The Sirens of Cetham

Lorraine Smith, Rebecca Ashton

    Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


    The Sirens of Cetham explores the characters and lives of three sirens, strange creatures in human form, banished to a lone rock to live out their longings and desires for eternity. The audience is taken on an emotional journey away from their home to the siren’s prison where they are entranced by the siren’s demonstrative lives of sadness, tragedy, playfulness and longing.

    Bibliographical note

    The Sirens of Cetham was created by a collective of artists, with each of the main artists working with mentees for the duration of the project. This innovative and collaborative approach generated a performance in which all elements (dance, music and costume) blended seamlessly and with great affect. The project also included an character interactive day of workshops (dance, arts and crafts) at a local primary school, in which participants created decoration and props for the main performance.
