Tonight we evoke the element of water – plunging its depths where fabled Mermaids may or may not swim. Real or imagined, fabled or fact, there she is – in the zeitgeist of urban myth and ancient folklore – her tale as old as religion. She’s beautiful – strumming – dangerous – sexy – beastly – and alluring – but does she really exist? Reticent to talk her out of existence – many believe that just maybe … she’s blanketed beneath the noise of a dense fog of slate coloured water. Our relationship with the ocean is deep and complex – some even believe we sprung from it – before loosing our webbing and walking on land.
As we learned to tread did we forget our ‘Mer’ ways?
Come now – hold your breath as we go deeper to investigate her – she the siren of the sea.
An evening scaling watery depths through sound. Hear two ABC Radio National ‘Night Air’ features exploring our relationship with water. Enjoy the launch of a mermaid feature produced by self-confessed radiophile Siobhan Moylan.
