The story of a duckling from the inside out, it comprises images of birth, discovery of the world and growing awareness that one is different. It touches upon themes of journeying, uprootedness, cutting the umbilical cord and being attacked by villains - ghosts from within and without - and after a long and painful journey, taking one's place and contemplating the possibility of spreading one's wings. But because beauty is not perfect, not even the swan's, no one really knows what lies behind its blissful appearance. The Little Mermaid: A lyric piece, a love poem set in a world that shifts between water and air, reality and dreams. It depicts a state of mind, an emotional condition and, above all, a journey toward independence. The Little Mermaid is poetry and sensuality, beauty and powerful acrobatics.
