Other than occasional hip-hop extravaganzas, there's not much dance that targets pre-teen audiences, or indeed wins their approval. Pucko Company hopes to win a similar response for contemporary work with this new touring production.
On paper, producer Colin Baird's concept imagines a magical adventure where boundaries blur between everyday childhood and the tiny, underfoot realm of insects. A dreamy kind of boy, much-teased by three boisterous girlies, looks through a magnifying glass and is suddenly drawn into a fantasy where the hopping, jumping, scuttling critters look remarkably like the trio who rag him (good-naturedly) at school. On-stage, this is certainly what happens. If you know how and where to look.
