An original production for young audiences.
Join an ensemble of professional dancers as they creep, crawl, weave, fly, spin, sting, and hatch a captivating cast of creatures to life! Written and choreographed by Artistic Director Lauren Tait, BUGGED! will transport viewers into the hungry bullfrog’s fly-filled bog, a busy, buzzing beehive, the chrysalis of the contemplative caterpillar, and the web of the bella Tarantella, just to name a few. Featuring costumes of original wearable artworks provided by MannequART and MD Fashion Institute, as well as original poetry, dynamic props, and a delightful musical compilation including original work by composer Ferdinand Maisel, BUGGED! will dazzle audiences young and old.
BUGGED was created for the Kinetics Dance Theatre’s Annual Family Concert Series, designed to make professional modern dance accessible to young audiences. Family Concert Series productions tell stories through dance and are crafted with sophisticated choreography, imaginative props, and vibrant costumes and music to result in a rich arts experience for the whole family.
Open to all ages, recommended pre-kindergarten through 5th grade.
