Cast of fourteen.  Silk artists, dancers, a stilt artist, actors, bungee aerial, original musical score with a piece created by the jazz-fusion musician, John Medeski.  Performers from companies such as: Pilobolus, Cirque Du Soleil, The Metropolitan Opera, and De La Guarda. Grounded Aerial has shown Insectinside in San Franscico, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn. 



Insectinside catapults the audience in a whirlwind of flying wasps, glowing fireflies, and a towering praying mantis.  Ravenous insects tackle the themes of love, grace, madness, and greed, revealing layers of human empathy.  Insectinside is a spectacle of stunning imagery, audience immersion, and jaw –dropping physical feats.  Within, a raw and volatile love story provokes the question: Is strife necessary to achieve enlightenment and love?
