Merwif is a series of visitations from imagined aquatic mythologies. Merwif empowers us to honor the unknown, our sexuality, our spiritual lives and our relationship with the earth. Join us as we expose and embrace the dirtier aspects of each of these pertinent topics.
We, as mermaids, have handcrafted felted mermaid-inspired jewelry, a variety of mermaid art using found sea objects, and a deck of oceanic oracle cards inspired by archetypes and symbols from the show. After the performance, spectators will have the opportunity to explore the Mermaid Market and the installation in which it will be housed. They can try on mermaid inspired jewelry, browse oceanic art, receive a mermaid divination reading, and dance with the aquatic mythologies of past, present, and future as they gather and commune in the light and structure of the unknown. The Mermaid Market functions through a trust-based value exchange. Visitors are encouraged take what they desire and in return offer what they feel is appropriate, whether it be a ring on their finger or a monetary donation. Mermaid divination readings will be offered as a continuation of our performance. These readings will include oceanic oracle cards and mermaid massage.
PS. Attendance is limited to 16 guests per performance! Purchase tickets in advance to secure your seat.
