National Insect Week returns in 2020

“You sip your drink, enjoying the sugary twang spike your tongue. The first notes of your favourite song wrap around your ears and propel you to the hive of dancers.”
There’s a hum at a party. Glitter in the air. Invite in hand, don’t forget why you’re here. It’s about movement, love and care. Take a journey into the world of these black and yellow pollinators.
We dance to celebrate. We dance to communicate. We dance to survive.
A physical, imaginative and bold show exploring environmental issues.

Running time: 50 minutes plus post-show discussion.
There are lots of contenders here – possibly the pretty red and blue rove beetle Paederus – very, very tiny amounts of its poison have been used to cure chronic ulceration in people. Ladybirds are pretty poisonous (and pretty) and can bleed foul-tasting poisonous brightly coloured blood from their knees.
