What are we really looking for when we tilt our heads to the night sky?

CONSTELLATIONS is an audiovisual exploration of humanity's relationship to the cosmos. It is witty and sensual, a multi-sensorial experience that sits somewhere between electronic music, devised theatre and sci-fi musical. It takes you wandering through the celestial depths of loneliness and intimacy where you will meet a long-suffering, slightly perverse star, a soft-hearted, depressive moon and a multitude of other strange and fascinating voices. These voices ask what extra-terrestrial bodies see and feel when they look down on us, and how our own perception of time and identity changes when we turn our heads to the night sky. Inspired by images from the Hubble extreme Deep Field and video from the NASA space station as well as myths, memories and Clock’s personal relationship with stargazing, CONSTELLATIONS traverses the boundaries of analogue and digital through sound, music and projection.

The show premiered at The Cockpit in 2016, where it received glowing reviews and was described as ‘Laurie Anderson meets the Clangers’, and ‘hypnotic, mesmerising, chilling’.
