How I Became a Mermaid is a multimedia performance exploring suicide, death and rebirth, mental health issues, nationalism and belonging. It tells the story of a young author struggling with depression who spontaneously starts to become a mermaid when she is attacked for her beliefs.

How I Became a Mermaid is a story. A fever dream. A collage. A zine. A murder scene. A metamorphosis. A resurrection. An album. A drowning. A breath of fresh air. A catharsis. A gulp of salt water. A critique of la patria. A love letter to la madre tierra. A cry. Un desahogo. A response. A freedom manifesto. An answer. A reaction. A meditation.
