3rd Annual Mermaid Lagoon at House of Yes

Mermaid Lagoon was created three years ago by Kai Altair as a way for her to give back to the ocean after the release of her debut EP 'Star of the Sea.'  Called a 'modern day mermaid' by CBS news, the ocean is one of Kai's greatest inspirations, and she created the 'Lagoon' as a way to join with her music, circus, and performance artist community to create a vaudeville-type show within a glowing lagoon of beautiful mermaids.  Since the inception of Mermaid Lagoon, thousands of dollars have been raised and sent to the Waterkeeper Alliance in the Gulf of Mexico, and The Oceanic Preservation Society (known for their Oscar winning documentary 'The Cove,' about the mass slaughter of dolphins in Japan.)


It has happened before, and it will happen again. . .  

Once upon a time, in a blue lagoon not so far from New York City, there lived a village full of beautiful Mermaids.  Legend tells that for one night in the deep of summer their lagoon is safe for mortal travelers, they ask only that you make an offering to The Sea, and dance with them. . .

Come away to Mermaid Lagoon, for an evening of performance, dance, revelry, and song as we dig deep to give back to our oceans. Mermaid Lagoon will increase ocean awareness and support through enchanting performance, interactive art, raffles, games, prizes, and internet contributions. Funds will be donated directly to the local Waterkeeper Alliance, and to ORCA Peru, a foundation that is currently assisting in the research of mass deaths of sea mammals in the South Pacific Ocean.  This year the Lagoon mermaids have teamed up with Ocean Lifeline, and hope to bring a feminine, artistic edge to the plight of the world ocean and its creatures.  Join them as we remember our connection to the sea, and celebrate its enchantment, mystery, and beauty in a glowing lagoon full of dancing mermaids, projected ocean images, and bio-luminescent sea life. Performances by songstress Kai Altair, Coney Island's Best Mermaid Ali Luminescent, oceanographer/performance artist Dr. Mermaid, fire siren Cynthia Carvajal, and aerial and circus arts by Eric Schmalenberger, Kae Burke, Anya Sapozhnikova, Claire de Luxe, Bex Burton, Andriana Santiago, Christine Geiger, and more. Dance all night to underwater sounds of Justin Aubuchon in a nighttime lagoon of projections by VJ Masha, and bio-luminescent sea life by Greg Skolozdra.  Tropical Fruit Drinks & Mermaid Treats By Love Girl.  Dress: Inspired by the sea
