The Mermaid is a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid, created by a team of teenage and adult theatre-makers.
Their retelling of the story traces the journey of a fifteen-year-old mermaid, her transformation, obsession, sacrifice, self-destruction, and self-actualization. A tragicomedy with a teenage chorus that has a screaming vision for a hopeful tomorrow.
A poetic piece of visual theatre about finding your voice and the power that comes with using it.
