WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Sirens is written - and performed - by six young women, members of the internationally renowned Belgian company, Ontroerend Goed. It is their heartfelt, yet irreverent, feminist manifesto for the 21st century. They describe a new journey of contemporary femininity: their expectations, persisting inequalities, hard-fought rights, self-censorship and everyday abuse. Co-operating like a musical sextet, they scream, laugh, sing, speak and cry their way through their experiences as women in the modern Western world, with new-found joys and liberties. They've taken control of their lives, expression and appearance and moved on, past militant anti-male rage to the hope that men can be just as feminist as they are.
