"Thina": A World Premiere from SYREN Modern Dance

This virtual offering will stream live from the Museum of Science for registrants to enjoy at home. Registrants will receive links to view this program via email within 24 hours of the event start time.

SYREN Modern Dance joins the Museum of Science for a special virtual event this fall! After a sold-out performance of their hit piece Tick Tock last winter, SYREN Modern Dance teams up with the Museum once again for a special evening of artistic conversation and the world premiere of a brand-new dance piece, "Thina," created in quarantine.

"Thina," meaning us/we in Zulu, is a dance created by Kate St. Amand for the dancers of SYREN inspired by the work of South African composer Philip Miller. The project uses Miller's re-creation of the beloved Reuben T. Caluza song "Influenza 1918" in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. SYREN is currently rehearsing virtually, via Zoom, to create the dance in much the same way that Miller's musical collaborators worked to create the song.

Don't miss this one-night-only world premiere and artistic conversation about creation during COVID times with one of the nation’s most exciting dance companies and the Museum of Science.

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