«She is a star, and as with many stars, Young provokes an equal measure of cult worship and fury.»
The New York Times


Ann Liv Young’s style of audience interaction has been compared to torture. Yet she is presented at some of the most central venues and festivals in Europe. Young visited Avant Garden’s Bastard-festival in 2010 with “Cinderella”, a show that created media fuss and intense debate. In “Mermaid Show”, Young is a mermaid retelling her life story. Whereas mermaids are sanitized and Disneyfied in modern culture, in folktales they seduce, capture and kill sailors. They are sexualized but also grotesque fish creatures who are, in fact, sexless. So prepare yourself to be disgusted, intrigued and turned on. And prepare yourself for the fact that when it comes to Ann Liv Young’s stage performance, you can never be prepared enough.
