They’re all around us but we cannot see them. Come and discover the extraordinary world of microbes - the invisible organisms that shape our planet. Join your larger-than-life tour guide Brenda and friendly and forgetful lab assistant Charles as they unearth miniature monsters and curious creatures in hidden worlds much closer than you might think. A visual theatre experience for both adults and children that features puppetry, shadow theatre and an original score, Microbodyssey is an unforgettable journey into the microscope that makes science captivating and fun
