The Enchantment

The seas have long held a legend of Sirens, the beautiful enchantresses that bewitched passing sailors with their songs. This mystique is embraced by the Bollywood dancers of Sirens Dance, who tantalise us with their unique collage of colour, movement and passion.
Set in a breath-taking coastal landscape, this film marries the undulating forms and textures of nature with the moving contours of the body, to evoke the primal pull of dance.
The choreography fuses styles from around the world with Bollywood and traditional Indian dance, creating a seductive piece as culturally diverse as the performers who bring it to life.
