Four mesmerizing mermaids invite you to the depth of their cabaret, a place where they distract themselves from the agonizing length of their aquatic life span. Witness their daily routine and see how they entertain, seduce and serenade each other, as well their drowned lovers and other occasional guests like you - Dear Audience.
In this show performers explore what it means to be in-between. By using the mermaid as a symbol for a body that is always two things at once they navigate dualities, floating endlessly between sea and land, becoming human and animal, and spending their time undertaken by both reality and magic.
