The Delegates street theatre performancewas devised at the Mintfest International Summer School for Street Arts (MISSSA) 2011 under the direction of Briab Popay of Fine Artistes. Performed at Mintfest in Kendal and at Derby Feste.
After formally opening their International Institute of Insectology conference, The Delegates act upon their civic duty to inform and warn the public that a swarm of mutating insects are travelling towards the conference venue via InterRail. As the insect swarm arrives, The Delegates take inceasingly drastic, and at times comic measures to p
rotect the public from infection and mutation. Despite the vigilance against the insect threat, one of The Delegates is bitten and undergoes a dramatic metamorphosis. The remaining and resolutely human insectologists seek to contain and manage the mutant creature.

Director: Brian Popay
Insectologists: Ben Adams, Antoinette Burchill, Stephen Jon, Sarah McCluskey and William Trevelyan.
