Hurts so good

September 29, 2010

It was easy to be attracted to SIRENS by Deborah Zoe Laufer.  I mean, its called SIRENS.  Everyone has had moments of indulging in something that is absolutely not good for us, even detrimental, but it feels so good so…

The idea of a siren calls up so many images – the beautiful woman and  water churning around ocean rocks.  You can almost hear the luring strains of siren song. Laufer explores that very mystery in her play.  She illumnates how sexy the unknown can be.  Siren song can be found in mythology quite easily, but it is just as readily discovered in the modern day. Why do we all sign on to facebook, search the internet, register for  Why do we launch out into night clubs, bars and nightlife?  What are we looking for?  Are we following that ever elusive, even addictive call of the siren?  It is the call of possibility, of something new and exciting, of something maybe even a little dangerous.  How delicious.

Join us on Thursday, October 7th at 7:30 at the Greater Reston Arts Center for a Free Staged Reading of SIRENS and take in the JOURNEY exhibit by Freya Grand.  The play and art resonate with each other beautifully.  Crash on the rocks with us…it hurts so good.
