A child with see-through skin and hair that never dries is discovered in a rock pool on the Cornish coast. But land or sea, where does she belong?
‘A long time ago it would have been common place to recount sightings of Merfolk, but not now, now you’d be crazy to talk of such things.’
Taken in by a young couple the girl is fascinated by the sea and on a stormy night she asks her mother to recount one of her many tales.
Thrown into her favourite story, The Mermaid of Zennor, we embark on a mysterious voyage filled with mermaids and sea monsters, wandering curses and soul cages. A story of betrayal, belonging and ultimately love.
Moon on a Stick’s vibrant new show The Mermaid of Zennor fuses puppetry with live action taking the audience from the stormy Cornish coast to the mysterious depths of the sea and back again. Their innovative style transports you into a world where the unimaginable is absolutely possible.
Stepping into the realms of adult puppetry, this is puppetry as you’ve never seen it before.
