Sirens is written – and performed – by six young women, members of the internationally renowned Belgian company, Ontroerend Goed. It is their heartfelt, yet irreverent, feminist manifesto for the 21st century.
They describe a new journey of contemporary femininity: their expectations, persisting inequalities, hard-fought rights, self-censorship and everyday abuse.
Co-operating like a musical sextet, they scream, laugh, sing, speak and cry their way through their experiences as women in the modern Western world, with new-found joys and liberties. They’ve taken control of their lives, expression and appearance and moved on, past militant anti-male rage to the hope that men can be just as feminist as they are.
Sirens – six young women, both alluring and alarming. The stage is theirs.

It’s the unexpected juxtapositions that make this beautifully put-together show so startling and so thought-provoking. Big, bold, brazen, and not a hussy in sight. Only real women asking what it means to be a feminist.
It develops into a kind of beautiful howl of modern womanhood that echoes long after the cast leaves the stage
“A bold critique of everyday sexism”
