What's On


Based on the book by Hans Christian Andersen


From the ebb and flow of the narrative, moments of dark enchantment stream to the surface ... heartbreakingly beautiful.


It's hard to express just how gorgeous, how poignant and how downright radical it is.


The latest work by Shared Experience is wonderfully atmospheric and they craft a rich visual feast.

What's On Stage

This poetic stage adaptation is as profoundly deep as the ocean itself ... as a piece of theatre it works swimmingly well.

Public Reviews

A beautifully choreographed, innovative and unsettling interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's most famous tale.

The Stage

Sheer visual beauty.


Mermaid is mind-blowing: it's a beautiful, haunting and incredible piece of theatre.
