The Insect Circus
This article is from 2007.
While there are many other circus troupes who can climb higher and spin faster than this lot, none of them do it with six legs and antennae. During the course of 70 minutes, we’re introduced to acrobatic ants, a beautiful dying mayfly, a juggling dung beetle and a contortionist earwig among others. Utterly charming, in a Victorian music hall kind of way, The Insect Circus is surely the only place in the world where you can watch dust mites make a cup of tea. (Kelly Apter)
