Meow Meow's Little Mermaid
Post-post-modern diva MEOW MEOW'S unique brand of ‘kamikaze cabaret’ has hypnotised, inspired and terrified audiences globally.
With trail-blazing sell-out seasons from New York’s Lincoln Center and Berlin’s Bar Jeder Vernunft to London’s Apollo Theatre, Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Sydney Opera House, she returns to New Zealand in MEOW MEOW'S LITTLE MERMAID, making its world premiere at AAF 2016.
A sexy spectacle with just a little bit of punk, Meow Meow’s Little Mermaid is a decidedly un-Disney cabaret in which the golden -larynxed chanteuse raucously subverts Hans Christian Andersen’s mermaid tale of teen self-sacrifice, salvation and seduction.
A world of old sea shanties and hymns from the Titanic gives way to a glittering array of contemporary originals as Meow Meow sails to a land of altered hearts, minds and body parts.
Operatic and outrageous, the saucy sea ride features a rocking live band and a posse of cardboard cut-out princes led by real-life prince, Chris Ryan.
Forget the fairy tale you thought you knew, this rollicking affair is a fairy tale gone rogue.
