Hans Christian Andersen’s bittersweet fable of teen self-sacrifice, salvation and seduction is given the subversive Meow Meow treatment. The result is a sexy spectacle and a modern cabaret take on love and other catastrophes.
Forget the story you thought you knew, this Little Mermaid is a fairy tale gone rogue. A world of sea shanties gives way to a glittering array of contemporary music by the likes of Amanda Palmer, Kate Miller-Heidke and Megan Washington in this operatic and outrageous sea ride.
In part two of the Little trilogy that began with Meow Meow’s Little Match Girl, the cat is back and she’s not afraid to go in the water!
