  • Synopsis
  • Cast and creatives
  • Venue details
A headlong rush into a colourful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement. When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.

New circus show featuring 50 performing artists from 17 countries.

Royal Albert Hall [West End]

“Universally appealing... Astonishing acts...Looks beautiful... As a piece of performance theatre, it is virtually flawless.”

Aliya Al-Hassan (Broadway World)

“A winning sense of humour, a quality of absurdity... Its physical feats defy gravity and sometimes even belief... Quelle joie. ”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“A carnival feel... The company pushes the limits of physical possibility... Astounding athleticism... graceful storytelling.”

Arts Desk (other reviewers)

“As warm as it is slick and ranks as one of the best-designed extravaganzas in Cirque’s huge body of works.”

Donald Hutera (The Times)

“A supremely polished piece... rich in ooooh aaaaah moments... Vandal's costumes are works of art in their own right.”

Jo Caird (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“A familiar cocktail of great costumes, spectacular acts and terrible clowning... Colker directs with plenty of zip. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“At times creates a carnival mood... A celebration of the wonder of movement, and the performers twirl and tumble gloriously.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Dreadful clown comedy, enlivened by a series of jaw-dropping acrobatic interludes.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Delivers huge set pieces with impressive precision, but little heart or soul... Ingenious designs... Never quite coalesces.”

Luke Jennings (Observer)
