National Insect Week returns in 2020

New Creation (Insect Train) at Patrick Studio

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 20:00 to 21:00

NEW CREATION is a collaborative experimentation, reflecting on the interface of nature and the artifice of the human body.

Celebrated choreographers Bengolea and Holzinger, join forces to confront the limits of the body and its representation in relationship to nature.

Hybrid insects exist in a lake of slime, in an environment where unpredictable conditions force constant adaptation.

The infected landscape gradually disfigures their physical and sensory world.

Presented as part of Birmingham International Dance Festival 2018. See for the full programme of events.

'Thanatosis' is the scientific term for pretending to be dead, which is how many insects hide from predators.
