Part of Future Fantastic Festival

“We step out of our solar system, into the universe, seeking only peace and friendship…” 
So says the message from the human race on the Voyager spacecraft. But is there, y'know, anyone out there? Alex went to speak to an astrophysicist to find out. This is what he learned: Stellar Wobble. The Mirror Test. Fermi’s Paradox. The Enhanced Human and murderous dolphins.

Somewhere between stand-up and an astrophysics lecture, Third Angel brings you a simple show about huge ideas. 600 People explores the stories we tell in order to understand our place in the cosmos, that asks if there are extra terrestrials in our galaxy, that asks what it means to be human.

We said they were big ideas…


“Wow! Completely stunning!” “Genuinely mind-boggling!” audience reaction

About Third Angel

Third Angel is a theatre company. We are storytellers. We devise, write, design, direct and perform new theatre. We question our relationship with the world around us and encourage our audiences and participants to do the same. We believe that what is of particular interest to the individual is of interest to those in their society; that the story someone wants to tell is the story that we should hear; that small stories are as worth telling as big stories. Our theatre appears in different guises in different locations, but at its heart is a direct, unique relationship with our audience.
