You Are Here

Chris (SonOfNeil)

Tickets: £5


You Are Here is a performative lecture which explores the size of space. It attempts to understand and explain the sheer magnitude of awesome that is our universe by using; quantum mechanics, astrophysics, poorly phrased metaphors, and nonsensical, unintelligible concepts.

For example the show will use metaphors and phrases like:

Inconceivably Grand, the whole Infinity of creation, a bee in a cathedral, waltzing in the dark, like a raisin pudding, a bit like the sugary dusting on a fairy cake. And loads loads more.

This show is inspired by the novel The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy taking its surrealist vocabulary and odd British pessimism.

So come and get used to the awesome world of being a very small speck in an infinitely large universe. And the unadulterated excitement coupled with existential dread when you realise you are an invisible dot on an invisible dot labelled “You Are Here”.
