Big Bugs Show

Big Bugs Show

  • Chesséstraat 19 - 3hg, 1057 HW Amsterdam, Netherlands


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 the rampage through the streets, causing excitement and ‘mass-hysteria’ amongst the public. They are accompanied by The Forester who is trying to get a grip on the situation. "Don’t panic! We have everything under control!" he shouts, while the astonished crowd shrink back screaming. The electrifying, chaos-generating happening culminates in a hilarious circle-show/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 revels 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.
