Using their trademark mix of digital projections, live painting and performance, Insectotropics presents The Legend of the Burning Man, which tells the story of Mohammed Bouazizi, who sparked the Arab Spring when he set himself on fire in protest at the authorities in Tunisia. The show examines the spread of news across the internet, how social media offers partial and self-interested perspectives, and how public opinion and feelings are manipulated. Who controls what we believe?
The Legend of the Burning Man is a poetic journey, based on real events, created to answer a big question of our time: If we are all on the web, who is the spider?
