Don’t Let the Bedbugs Bite! is a contemporary dance piece about childhood memories and how they influence our behaviour and relationships.
Childhood experience has long-lasting effects on adult well-being. Shifting between past and present, the dancers try to link character traits to childhood memories and experiences. The viewers are invited to look back onto their own past and to connect to the stories on stage.
"Many images reminded me of my childhood."
"Very clear choreography that makes you think back."
"Interesting light choices and really strong performers!"
