Theatre du Mouvement's children's performance.

Bugs 48 mins, 1992
The greatest fear of the Bugs, half-human, half-insect creatures, is that they will return to their original state of being insects. They wish to look like human beings. This fable about human animality is an opportunity to enhance their failings: thefts, jealousy, fights, acts of cannibalism, violence and mockery are dealt with in a metaphorical way. The characters, with their strange gestures, seem to have come straight out from a science-fiction movie.

"Making of Bugs" 10 mins. - in French only



Established in 1975 by its present artistic directors, Claire Heggen and Yves Marc, the Theatre du Mouvement has been seen in sixty countries. Expert and entertaining, their work has been a major influence in the development of contemporary mime and visual theatre.
