TINY HORNETS invites you to experience the folk ways, mores, and lores of the village of It Didn’t Have To Come To This, a timeless place that will manifest in a secret garden in Bushwick for few weeks at the end of this summer. You will witness the folk at work and at play, dancing their authentic dances, and singing their traditional songs. You will get a chance to fondle their handicrafts, sample their foodstuffs and cordials, and participate in their celebrations. Guided by an intrepid Ethnographer, you will meet many fascinating village types, including Essie, a young girl who longs for a taste of something more... flesh.
