Glowworm

By the fountain at the edge of the Oxborough Gardens, an existential crisis is sparked by a midnight encounter with a glowworm.

Zelle De Brulle, an adolescent insect collector, becomes awakened to a universe of possibility and discovers what it really means to be alive. Take a journey through music, movement and puppetry in the fantastical laboratory of William Charles ‘Bugboy’ De Brulle.

Tom Neiboer, Davey Kelleher and Hanna Bowe create a visual storytelling experience for the old head and young heart. From grand spectacles to intimate curiosities, a life-and-death drama emerges about learning how to shine.
