Radiolab will be bringing their live performance of Apocalyptical to The Chicago Theatre on Saturday, October 12.
Cataclysmic destruction. Surprising survival. In this new live stage performance, the radio show and hit podcast turns its gaze to the topic of endings, both blazingly fast and agonizingly slow. With their signature blend of storytelling, science, and music, hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich romp through hundreds of millions of years of history to arrive at the end, again and again. With a cinematic live score created before your eyes by On Fillmore and Noveller, the evening will be a thought- provoking and laughter-inducing dance on the grave of our inevitable demise. Comedian Kurt Braunohler will also perform.
Radiolab is the innovative, Peabody Award-winning public radio sensation about wonder, discovery and big ideas. Co-hosted by veteran science reporter Robert Krulwich and McArthur “Genius” Jad Abumrad, the show tackles topics as diverse as why people see different colors in the same place, what machines can reveal about humanity, and why people get stressed out on a supermarket line. On Fillmore is an acoustic upright bass and percussion duo featuring bassist Darin Gray and Colin Campbell. Noveller is the solo electric guitar project of Brooklyn-based composer and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate.
