Six Legs

25th October at Juice Festival, Gateshead!


There’s a secret world all around us – the world of insects. Create a magical garden and the insects might just come out to play. They’ll tell you their stories, show you their world and teach you how to see like they see, hear like they hear, sing like the crickets, speak like the bees and catch flies like the praying mantis.

Six Legs is an imaginative and original theatre show for 4-7 year olds and their families. Find out about the amazing world of insects through puppetry, performance and plenty of chances for the audience to join in and help create the show.

Last summer theatre company Cap-a-Pie worked with an insect scientist called Dr Vivek Nityananda, two actors and lots and lots of children and families at an urban farm in Newcastle. This year they are back with a show featuring insects from all around the world and creative ideas from the heart of the North East.
