This highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale “The Little Mermaid” sings and dances the story of Ti Moune, the peasant girl who rescues and falls in love with Daniel, a young man from a wealthy family.  When Daniel is returned to his people, the gods who rule the island guide Ti Moune on a quest to test the strength of her love against the powerful forces of prejudice, hatred and death.   An intimate show presented in a dance/movement-driven style reminiscent of story theatre.
