BIG BUGS SHOW is a satirical urban legend about the beetles who grow to enormous proportions because of the consumption of junk food and breathtaking amounts of food-waste being available to them on the streets of the big cities.
Four huge lifelike beetles show up in the middle of the city. The ‘Kafkaesque’ parade, consisting of a giant Cockroach, an enormous Lady-bug, a Stag beetle, and a Jewel beetle, go on the rampage through the streets, causing excitement and ‘mass-hysteria’ amongst the public. The act, which starts as electrifying chaos-generating happening among the audience, culminates in a hilarious circle-performance on a city-square.
The story gets a satirical dimension through the character of The Forester (a spokesman of the environmental organisation G.R.E.E.N.) as he reveals a special bugs-fitness/lifestyle program which will reduce them back to their normal size. A solution to the giant-beetles-issue which is causing widespread panic and unrest amongst the population in and around big cities.
Big Bugs Show is production Iva & Petar Mandich created under the name of Mr. Image Theatre.
