Look down. What are you standing on? Explore the ground and all of its wriggling inhabitants in this quirky dance show for our youngest audiences.

Featuring worms, slugs, snails, spontaneous outbreaks of ant dancing and plenty of obscure insect-related facts, Grass uses performance, puppetry and projection to inspire children to look closely at the world around them, to get mucky and play!
