Enter a world of supernatural beasts, power, jealousy & transformation.
Medieval rulers of England and France often claimed descent from a part demonic, part angelic, part human, part fish-tailed creature called Melusine – a creator of peace and of conflict, a builder of cities, a vengeful daughter and a wronged wife – a legendary figure who the kings would credit for their achievements and blame for their cruelties.
World renowned storyteller TUUP, joins forces with regular collaborators from the band Transglobal Underground, Hamid ManTu and Tim Whelan, to bring these wild medieval legends into focus for a new world.
Combining story, music, unpredictable instrumentation & contemporary technology, journey with them through a landscape that is as much science-fiction as it is fairytale.
