Darwin & His Fabulous Orchids

Feb. 22, 2019, 7:30 p.m.

Aesthetic, unique, impressive—this introduction to the largest and most varied family of plants and to the research carried out by Charles Darwin will be an optically intense, but at the same time elegant experience. Lose yourself in a sea of colours, let yourself be carried away and intoxicated.

Orchids are amazingly seductive and full of tricks when it comes to attracting insects and ensuring pollination, which in turn means securing their own survival. Their creativity amazed Charles Darwin who carried out intensive research on this family of plants.

In gigantic close-ups, the audience will learn the tricks used by the orchids to ensure their reproduction. Darwin once wrote that hardly anything else had fascinated him so much as orchids.

Audience: Older students and adults.
