Screen icon Isabella Rossellini comes to Queen Elizabeth Hall with Green Porno, her mind-blowing show about the sex life of insects.

The Italian actress is best known for her roles in Death Becomes Her and in David Lynch’s Blue Velvet.
In Green Porno she is able to combine her talent for story-telling with her interest in animals and animal behaviour. Her one-woman show explores some of the weird, wonderful and sometimes dangerous antics of mating in the animal world.

Rossellini examines the sex lives of a number of insects, from bees and flies to spiders and worms, featuring wild orgies, inexplicable acrobatics and males eaten right after reproduction. The show features a range of crazy and colourful costumes, adding a playful approach to her tales of the bedroom antics of insects and sea creatures.

The show is based on the award-winning short films commissioned by Robert Redford for the Sundance channel, which were written and co-directed by Rossellini, and have received millions of views.
