As SYREN celebrates its 20-year anniversary, the company is proud to present Ithaka, a nine-section modern dance created by Kate Sutter in collaboration with the dancers of SYREN and set to the lively and dynamic music of LA-based composer and producer Calimossa.

Like the beloved Constantine Cavafy poem from which it takes its name, Ithaka honors and celebrates the idea of “the journey” as a worthy end in itself. Taking SYREN’s twenty rich years of dance-making as inspiration, Ithaka’s nine sections are placed in chronological order of the company’s history since its founding year of 2003 and range in mood from ecstatic to contemplative, boisterous to humbled, deeply reflective to exuberantly joyful. Ithaka captures the spirit of an ongoing quest, a quest not for a specific destination but rather simply for the gift of continued passage – in this case, the passage of human bodies through space and time, spanning countries and decades, sharing with audiences and co-creators far and wide. SYREN invites you to join them in what is at once a retrospective on journeys past and a joyous embarking on those to come.

The event is finished.
