“Thina” presented by SYREN Modern Dance


SYREN Modern Dance presents a special in-person performance of “Thina,” the culmination of a yearlong journey documenting the creation of the original dance performance piece during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Thina” meaning us/we in Zulu, is an ongoing project created by Kate St. Amand for the dancers of SYREN during the pandemic. Inspired by music of South African composers Reuben T. Caluza, Philip Miller, and Ann Masina, “Thina” is a multi-phasic project that continues to unfold in real time, uniquely shaped by the ever-shifting conditions of the pandemic.

Phase One was created and performed entirely via Zoom, presented by the Museum in November 2020. Phase Two was performed by the dancers in the space together in New York City (masked and socially distanced) and streamed in an event again hosted by the Museum in May 2021. After 21 months away from performing in person, SYREN is overjoyed to return to the Museum and to share Phase Three of “Thina” as a robust, full contact, group dance!

SYREN is a New York based modern dance company committed to bringing dynamic live performance to a growing and diverse audience base.

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
