“The Mermaid’s Soul” 6+

Non-verbal play “The Mermaid’s Soul” is a play for a whole family, which is based on the fairy tale by H.C.Andersen “The Little Mermaid”. A beautiful tale is told by the poetry of the body movements, deep light, images and sounds and touches upon a serious and even childless theme. What can you sacrifice for your cherished dream? The Little Mermaid’s dream is to become a human being, to meet mutual love and more important to obtain the immortal soul. To make her dream come true she gives up everything she has: her marvelous voice, her home, her family and friends. May be the souls of the Little Mermaid and her beloved prince were meant to meet but on Earth they were not fated to be together. What are you ready to give away for you dream? What does it mean for us to have a soul? What is a soul in general?
