After performing to packed houses across the US, Adam Savage and Michael Stevens are bringing their interactive, food for thought live show Brain Candy to Australia.
“The unofficial theme of this version of Brain Candy is air. We show off the weird properties of air, how to produce smoke without fire, we use air pressure to lift someone off the ground! 80% of the show is try this at home and we show you how.”
Savage is best known for co-hosting MythBusters and Stevens as the creator of award winning YouTube channel Vsauce. Touring the capital cities, the boys will touch down in Sydney on January 27 to perform at the Star Event Centre.
“As you could imagine, Adam and I together and there is no end to what we want to do on stage, but we had a great director, Michael Webber who helped us narrow down our focus. We want people to leave with a greater understanding that science isn’t just for nerds or scientists, it’s for all of us.”
The show will have the master explainers engaging audiences with crazy toys, incredible tools and mind blowing demonstrations.
When asked why this kind of science is so engaging Michael replied “We are curious by nature as a species. When you start to ask questions, you start to feel more powerful but you also feel paradoxically humbler.”
Families and attendees are in for two hours of wonder, laughter, exploring and learning as Savage and Stevens present a theatrical experience like no other.
Jan 27. Star Events Centre, 80 Pyrmont St, Pyrmont. $59.90-$364.40+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.ticketek.com.au
