SUMMER SHOW 2008!
I AM AN INSECT
A FLUTTERING PROCESSIONARY OF INFINTESSIMAL IDEAS.
Paperhand's 9th annual summer puppet pageant extravaganza featuring
Giant puppets, masks, painted cardboard, stilts, bikes, and shadows all set to live music. Don't miss this exciting exploration of the fantastical world of the small.
This year the cardboard constructionists of Paperhand investigate the freakishly fantastic whimsical world of the small.
Insects, bugs, and other arthropods come to life amidst towering grasses and flowers.
Dung Beetles, millipedes, and grasshoppers on bikes; caterpillars, butterflies, ants and much more!
Myriad forms unfold over vast ages of time, when we arrive in the 19th century backyard of Jean-Henri Fabre.
See, the gigantically unexpected. Hear the sounds of the spiraling universe. Join the Insect Insurrection!
They (the insects) can survive without us, but could we live without them?
