SYREN Modern Dance

SYREN Modern Dance will premiere Red and Blue, Bitter and Sweet, a piece inspired by the dynamic and mysterious world of quantum physics.  Each evening will include a conversation with Allen Mincer, Ph.D, and Professor of Physics at NYU.  The opening night conversation will be moderated by Alexandra Beller.

The piece explores theories such as Entanglement, Duality, Uncertainty Principle and Superposition in a way that aims to shed light on complex scientific theory through the lens of art and human connection.  The way particles function at the subatomic level is vastly different than how we see the world function on a daily basis.  The disparity between both realities is a key point of departure for the work.  While the inspiration for the piece is science-based, the exploration itself is filled with humanity.  The many emotions we experience throughout life: love, joy, loss, and anticipation are all explored.  Life itself is the manifestation of the way our particles interact; both within us and within each other- it is a dance, indeed.

Red and Blue, Bitter and Sweet is choreographed by Kate St. Amand and is performed by Rivkins Christopher, Meghan Dodd, Xuexin (Nico) Li, Darcie Perkins, and Lynn Peterson. Additional collaborators include Kate Ashton, lighting design, and Naomi Luppescu, costume design.  

Tickets are $25.00 at the door, on the evening of a performance the box office opens at 7:00PM. Advanced tickes are $20.00 and can be purchased online at gibneydance.org/performance/pop/syren-modern-dance/or over the phone at 646.837.6809.  For inquires about group sales contact boxoffice@gibneydance.org
