To celebrate National Science Week, the SUBLIME SCIENCE CABARET features Charlie Marshall & the Curious Minds, Rod Quantock, Alicia Sometimes, Sean M Whelan and Caresse Cranwell in a mix of music, video, poetry and stand up comedy that boldly goes where few shows have gone before to extol the wonders of the universe and our planet.
Renowned Melbourne poets Alicia Sometimes and Sean Whelan will present their arresting poetry of wonder, science and metaphysics.
Stand up comedy icon and environmental activist Rod Quantock will deliver his darkly satirical take on the history of the earth, science of climate change, and the ever increasing stupidity of political discourse in the face of impending ecological and economic disaster, and ecological campaigner and poet fron the Gold Coast Caresse Cranwell will perform her deeply moving ecophilosophical poems.
Melbourne singer, songwriter and science teacher Charlie Marshall has been described as an intriguing cross between Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and the BBC's Brian Cox. For this event he performs his new critically acclaimed scientific, ecological concept album Sublime with band The Curious Minds, accompanied by video projection and engaging science commentary on the songs by the man himself.
Master of Ceremonies for the night will be Jonathan W Marshall, Senior Lecturer from the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
Sublime Science Cabaret is a celebration of science in two parts.
Act One 'Physics' extols the wonders of the universe and our planet, Act Two 'Ecology' is a plea to take better care of this pale blue dot we call home.
