The Secret Life of Bugs Less

Step through the magnifying glass of blacklight puppetry into a world of Dragonflies and Dung Beetles. An exotic musical soundtrack provides the thread that connects insect, plant and animal species in the web of life. Ananse the Spider uses his knowledge of entomology to help students identify natural events such as orb weaving, nesting and metamorphosis. The performance space must be darkened.
