Tmesis Theatre




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 Selkies 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 was presented as part of Physical Fest 2023 and features live music from acoustic duo Me and Deboe.
