SEALSKIN

Our new performance SealSkin opened this year’s Physical Fest at the Liverpool Everyman and is available for national and international touring.

 

In a village far away, by the wild landscape of the sea, every full moon the Selkies appear.As they peel away their seal skin, they dance freely in the moonlight, as humans. One such night a fisherman discovers their secret and, stealing away a Selkie’s skin, our story begins.

 

A battle of longing and belonging, SealSkin is a powerful story of betrayal, power, otherness and loss. Combining Tmesis’ trademark playful and highly skilled physicality, this new show is presented as part of Physical Fest 2023 and features live music from acoustic duo Me and Deboe.

 

An absolutely enchanting piece of theatre… a real beauty’ ★★★★.5

Arts City Liverpool- Catherine Jones

 

A much-deserved double standing ovation for a piece determined to make you engage and reflect, in what I would best describe as a very moving and emotional experience’ ★★★★★ Northwestend

 

Tmesis is a company that is constantly changing and challenging itself, setting ever higher standards and examining the collective human experience in different ways. This production is something new again and with some unforgettable imagery and storytelling, certainly ranks among its best work’

Made Up on Stage- Vicky Anderson

 

‘Tmesis created an ambitious and innovative production that was loved by audiences when it premiered at the Everyman. Sealskin is a mix of physical performance and stunning visuals, funny and thought-provoking at the same time. Live music from Me + Deboe elevates the show, bringing depth and emotion to the production.’
