Insect Theatre Workshops

Insect theatre workshops for humans of all ages at Ouseburn Farm

Come to as many or as few of the workshops as you would like. No need to book just turn up for a session with you best insect impression!

This summer, theatre company Cap-a-Pie is running free drama workshops to people of all ages. But these are not just any drama workshops, we’ll be working alongside with Dr Vivek Nityananda to explore the world of…..INSECTS!

Dr Nityananda is an insect expert and through loads of fun and physical activities and exercises we will look at:

  • how and why insects behave the way they do
  • how animals use their senses to interact with each other and the world around them
  • and we’ll even learn how praying mantises can see in 3D!

These workshops are for all the family and you’ll be helping to make a brand new piece of theatre inspired by all things creepy and crawly.
