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 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 a 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.
