After developing a cluster of rare genetic disorders, artist Hanna Cormick cannot breathe normal air or safely be among us.

The Mermaid recontextualises her real medical devices in the form of a mermaid – free in the ocean but vulnerable on land.

Cormick risks medical emergencies to expose usually invisible topics to an intimate audience.

A revelation on rare disease, a rebellion against its limitations, and a corporeal metaphor for the fragility of our ecosystem.

This performance contains allergens coconut oil and beeswax. Patrons with airborne sensitivities are advised to take caution. May contain medical events that are distressing to some viewers.

Booking fees apply to all SydFest ticket purchases
