SYREN Modern Dance
SYREN Modern Dance is a New York City based company Co-founded by Lynn Peterson and Kate St. Amand. Now in its 18th season, SYREN is impassioned to explore, connect, collaborate, and share through the art of dance.
SYREN has been exploring the intersection of science and art since 2015, which led to the premiere of “Red and Blue, Bitter and Sweet” in 2017. This dance was inspired by quantum mechanics, specifically entanglement, uncertainty principle, super position, and duality. SYREN’s most recent pre-COVID work “Ticktock” is performed in collaboration with Astrophysicist Dr. Paul Sutter. “Ticktock” is an exploration of time using dance and narrative sequences, and it has been presented by the Bryant Park Contemporary Dance series, Museum of Science-Boston, and the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
In an effort to share the process of this intersection of science and art, SYREN created “Science in Motion”, and has since shared it with The American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington D.C., Society of Physics Students at NYU, Women in Physics at Yale, Children’s Museum of Manhattan, American Physical Society’s New England Conference, IONA College, The Chapin School, St. Paul’s School for Girls, Cambridge Science Festival, High Tech High School, OSU Dance Department, The Young Women’s Leadership School of Astoria, and Girl's Inc. of NY
