Bat Night Market tells the tales of the extraordinary bat species, examining their imperative nature in our global ecosystem and teaching us that conservation of the key species is more crucial now than ever before.

As audiences embark on this strange journey into a futuristic Taiwanese night market, we are invited to explore what interspecies resourcefulness and creative food solutions might look like, in the not-so-distant future, and in the face of the climate crisis.

Set in an imagined night market where bat species are extinct, Bat Night Market intersects performance, speculative design and science.
