I've been focusing on the character of Ariel. Men have played the character, women have played the character. In the play Ariel is a tree, a person and a harpy. All of this to me suggests shapeshifting and the gender of the role being different depending on the production supports that in my eyes. Well, I have yet to design Ariel as a woman but here are a few sketches of Ariel as male, a harpy and a child. I like the idea of Ariel appearing as a child. I think it's creepy.
