By sunlight, new and strange species of insect emerge to feed and flirt among surreal landscapes of gigantic flowers and gardens of terrestrial delights. By moonlight, this unearthly microverse becomes a nightmare shadowscape as the two kleptomaniacs attempt to steal eggs from monstrous super-predators. The tranquillity of eden trembles with war and rage, as a deadly game of survival plays out. Salsa Invertebraxa is a magical window into a beautiful, dangerous and mysterious world.
