About This Show

A journey told through songs and movement, inspired by the legend of the Selkies, magical creatures that are known to be seals in the water and once in a blue moon they come to the land, take off their skin and become women dancing free. This is the story of the Selkie who once got her skin stolen and her long journey back to reclaim what she’s made of. Without her skin the woman becomes a doll, and then the mere shadow of herself. Finally the voice inside her awakens her back to her true nature and inner power.
