Continually exploring new dimensions in visual /mask theatre, in 2012 Iva & Petar launched BIG BUGS SHOW, a ‘Kafkaesque’ crawling spectacle featuring four giant lifelike beetles. The spectacle is set on street, right amongst the audience. By taking some popular themes – such as ‘junk food’ and ‘food waste’ – and turning them into a form of a satirical urban legend – the authors create a contemporary street theatre that communicates with broad audience. Big Bugs Show has been in repertoire since 2012 and has been played with a great succes at many International (Street) Theatre Festivals, Puppet Festivals, City Festivals and environmental events ever since.
The authors about street theatre: “We believe that street theatre should not be merely ‘entertainment’. It should be in the same time engaging, it should reflect current matters and carry a message or comment. We see street theatre as an opportunity to create a form of true LIVING THEATRE, a ‘happening-like’, direct theatre.“
