The magical world of "The Insect Circus" invites the audience to forget reality and become immersed in the strange and beautiful world of insects. Beetles and grasshoppers, wasps and dragonflies, demonstrate their dexterity with great skill and humour. Presented using marionettes and live accordion music, the show breathes new life into the traditional techniques used in Victorian trick marionettes. Based in London, String Theatre presents performances using long-string wood-carved marionettes on a custom-built touring stage.

Tickets available on Moving Parts: Newcastle Puppetry Festival website here.

30 min show, suitable for children aged 3+ and their families. £6 / £5 (everyone must have a ticket including children and adults). No general admission is required to attend the event, purchase day tickets to enjoy the rest of the building all day.
