The Bug and the Butterfly

Jump1A play inspired by the poetry of Frederico García Lorca.

A dance-music theatre piece for children and their grown-ups about the little world in the grass.

Go outside. Look under a leaf. Turn over a log. Part the grass and look very very carefully. What do you see?

In a world where a dew drop is the size of a swimming pool and a flower is as tall as a skyscraper, an insect falls in love with a beautiful butterfly.

A heart-warming story in miniature about love, friendship, reaching for the moon and dancing leaf to leaf.

Swim with the shadow-fish to the ocean and fly with a nightingale all the way to the romantic stars.
