As strange and surreal as its title suggests, Astronomy For Insects is an unnerving dance macabre from a country in the throes of change. It's the free-fall logic of dreams and nightmares, a sci-fi world of ominous, outlandishly costumed characters, giant columns of light, and thrumming sound that sends shivers up your spine.

BlackSkyWhite's performances are always magical sights, an alarming clash of beauty and terror. They tell no story, reveal no plot, they reflect reality through distorting mirrors, travelling the thin line between our outer and inner worlds. The company's previous production, The USSR Was Here, won the Critics’ Prize at the 2001 Mimos Festival. London Premiere. Run time 70 mins with no interval.Company Blackskywhite.
