Follow The Little Mermaid on a poetic time travel while sailing on Copenhagen’s historic harbor - from the ancient times and up until the present. We'll sail into a magic realistic universe of sound, music and fairytale. Soaked in the Danish composer Rumpistol's contemporary beats, Copenhagen's historic harbor sets the visual scene for a new interpretation of H. C. Anderson's fairytale, The Little Mermaid.
You will experience the city's history through the eyes and ears of The Little Mermaid: Her first encounter with land (which later on becomes Copenhagen), her life and love on land. The story ends in the present day where she has become an old woman in the pulsing city, and finally is able to tell her own story.The new interpretation reflects the change of the view on women from H. C. Andersen’s golden ages to Todays strong, independent Copenhagen women.
The play is written by artist Maj D with consultant support from the well known author and litterature professor Martin Zerlang. The music is composed by the Danish composer "Rumpoistol".
