For the Benefit of Mr. Bugbee there will be a show tonight. Remember those fleas in the circus in cartoons when you were young. Take a trip to yesteryear with wonders of the insect world with The Insect Circus. A through-back to before video games were invented. This traveling circus on wheels is a museum, making mighty out of mite. It’s the Buffalo Bill of the insect world meeting the Cirque du Soleil of today.
‘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.’
