Charm City Merfolk

Charm City Merfolk is a walkabout performance featuring two costumed characters.  These ‘merfolk’ are centuries-long residents of the Chesapeake Bay who have left their native waters in order to understand the source of its destruction.  In search of answers and possible solutions, they wander the streets of Baltimore, interviewing its residents, intercepting debris before it enters the waterways and crafting merfolk charms from plastic bottles. Additional performance by Jacob Dillow and photos by Ana Tantaros.
