Journey to Inner Face
Daily, 11 am

Face it: You've got face mites. Luckily, Demodex folliculorum are harmless—and everyone else has them, too. In this interactive stage performance, embrace the "ick" factor and learn how the microscopic arachnids that feast on your face grease can teach us an enormous amount about humanity's ancient past. (And are actually kind of cute.)

Watch our resident face mite expert Dr. Michelle Trautwein on KQED's Deep Look.
