Behold the bedraggled beauties, swept up on the shore, serenading shipwrecked sailors with their sublime, sultry sounds….
“Hang on a minute now luv, you talkin’ about us or sumfink?”
These mermaids are not like the ones you’ve heard about in fairy tales. They are feisty and up to something distinctly fishy. Festival-goers can expect underwater warblings, mermaid mambo manoeuvres, fish maracas, octopus opera and much, much more.
This is a family friendly, fun-filled comedy dance performance, but remember—don’t feed the mermaids, they may bite! This trio is everywhere. Catch them near the bandstand on opening Sunday, performing their unique and nautically inspired shows and walkabout acts across the Lower Gardens. Taking inspiration from vintage postcards and summer seaside pastimes, the Bedraggled performance company Kitsch n Sync are set to introduce a splash of nostalgia and seafaring mischief to Bournemouth Arts by the Sea festival. We can’t wait! Follow the 3 costume-clad damsels as they dip their toes and cause a splash.
Capture your moment and share it with us @artsbournemouth #bythesea16
