Choreographer for leading international dance companies, filmmaker, and artistic director of Danish Dance Theatre, Pontus Lidberg returns to The Joyce with the U.S. premiere of SIREN. Taking inspiration from Ulysses’ encounter with the Sirens in Homer’s Odyssey, the dance investigates desire and isolation in a social media driven world.
