Havfruen

A contemporary circus performance of one of HC Andersen's most poignant and beloved stories, The Little Mermaid.

Magical and heartfelt

In Cirkus Cirkör and Kaleidoskop’s interpretation, HC Andersen's story about the Little Mermaid is transformed into a tale of magic and profound feeling. The focus is on Andersen's poetic, disturbing and infinitely beautiful story of the mermaid's longing for the prince's love and for an immortal soul – the tale of elements that can never be reconciled.
