Feb. 23-24: Mad Siren

Have you ever gotten lost in a song? A new work by Israeli choreographer Idan Cohen follows a group of performers as they evolve from passive Mozart listeners into the spirit of the music itself. The dancers wear masks resembling birds' nests in Mad Siren, a political work that delves into immigration and the search for a place to call home. You can see this contemporary dance performance this weekend at Dance Place in Northeast.
