‘The Chase’ saw the amazing Ychen Bannog, Oxen of Hugh Gadarn, and the Vikings who once conquered the Orme, process through the streets in their timeless search for the Conwy Mermaid. They were joined by the wicked Ring Master with his Circus entourage and Dark Sailors. The Mermaid would make a fine prize for his circus collection to draw in crowds of ogling public – but where is she?
‘The Mermaids Purse’ continued the story with stunning projection at North Western Gardens. This showed the pursuit of the mermaid over the centuries by Vikings, Hu Gadarn and the circus Ring Master, and her ongoing evasion of capture – racing and chasing through the waves.
November 2021 brings you
Chapter 3 “The Capture” a smaller and more intimate touring performance bringing the story to the communities of seven towns in Conwy. It offers the opportunity for watching the next instalment of this unravelling tale. The rumours are that the mermaid has finally been caught – so where is the mermaid? Will you see her? Is she friend or foe? One thing we know is that the power of a mermaid should not be underestimated
