|The Fisherman and the Mermaid|
Forties, Cromarty, Dogger, Fisher, German Bight!
It’s all aboard with Captain Fillet and his crew sailing the high seas in search of a massive catch. Out at sea, the crew, finding their nets empty and the ocean a millpond, set to telling salty tales of mermaids, sea creatures, sirenia and sunken villages. They reminisce about a time when the seas were bountiful and coastal communities thrived by the sea.
The relationship between fisher folk and the sea and the very topical issue of diminishing fish stocks is addressed in this enchantingly funny show. You can expect magical puppetry, sea shanties, slippery fish and a flock of bicycle-powered seagulls! The Fisherman and the Mermaid is an outdoor perambulating street show featuring Small World Theatres 3.4 metre tall fisherman. It is a short performance of elastic length (audience dictates) that can be performed more than once a day at different areas around your festival site.
In conjunction with this performance it is possible to book a childrens workshop 'Sea Creature Features', making masks and sea themed costumes/ accessories before a performance. Its a nice thing to do in addition to the performance and helps the audience get involved as the children have an opportunity to perform on stage during the 'underwater' section of the show.
The cost of this three handed performance depends on the number of shows, workshops and distance to venue. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
