Erie Sirens (1998 & 1999) created as a result of the synergy between Sarah Morrison and Scott Radke. A combination of sand-sculptures, dance, and music, Erie Sirens is presented at Edgewater Park Beach on Lake Erie. Performed at sunset, the dancers evoke the mythology of the Sirens, using the sand, rocks, and water as their stage. At the end of the dance, the nymphs curl up with their respective sand-image, as the sun sinks below the horizon.
