The Symptoms and Veronika Szabó: Sirens
Mysterious eyes and bodies appear on the horizon. A bush is shaken, a stone rolls away, tree branches creak and groan, a sound approaches from a distance.
We arrive in the mythic world of the sirens. They lure us on a walk, on an adventure through the forest into the spaces of our own subconscious. It is as if we are wandering between birth and death, or within our own familiar and unfamiliar inner spaces. We are afraid of it, we get lost in it, but it grants us power and vitality, making us both go quiet and become curious.
Together with the natural environment the voices and dancing of these half human animal creatures create a new myth and set a series of rituals in motion. The sirens open the gate through which we may pass with their help.
„Our work is inspired by the shamanistic traditions that make us work together closely with nature and its force creatures, teaching us, healing us and lending us strength through their movements, voices and auras.” (Veronika Szabó)
In our site-specific performance Sirens we invite our audience to walk or wander through the forest, to take part in a collective ritual where everyone can freely choose what paths they take – and whether they will be seduced by the sirens.
