Numéro Cinq at the Movies: Nicholas Humphries and Meagan Hotz's “Little Mermaid” --- R. W. Gray | Numéro Cinq
Nicholas Humphries and Meagan Hotz’s “Little Mermaid” takes Hans Christian Andersen’s already dark fairy tale and reimagines the “romance” as a swamp circus freak show about worn out and faded love. Since Andersen published the tale in 1836 there have been versions in almost every possible artistic form, his first incarnation written for ballet even.
