Irresistible: Call of The Sirens radically reworks the mythical story of Odysseus and how he narrowly survived the devastating Sirens who used their hypnotic song to lure sailors to their death.
Jez Colborne is a composer, musician and performer with Williams syndrome. As a child he was terrified of the sound of police sirens. In time, however, he has learned to love his former tormentor. Drawing upon his travels in the UK, USA and China and working in collaboration with Bradford’s Mind the Gap, Jez has created something truly irresistible.
See how his story continues with the next Push Me Collection: The Journey.
