Live music. Dancing. Light tricks. Ranchy jokes. This ain’t your high school science class.
It’s Radiolab’s In the Dark, a show that explores nature’s oddities and seeks to answer that age old quesiton: why?
Radiolab, a program heard on over 300 public radio stations across the country, is bringing its science/philosophy hybrid show to Seattle this weekend - and tickets are going fast.
The show, hosted by on-air personalities Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich, will explore the evolution of sight and the modern-day eye. Facts and tidbits will be sprinkled between live music performed by Thao Nguyen and dance performances by modern dance group Pilobolus (including a particularly hilarious dance with performers dressed as eyeballs).
Commedian Dave Foley emcees the show and keeps the momentum going with jokes and playful tit-for-tat with Abumrad and Krulwich.
The show takes an emotional turn, when the hosts play an old interview highlighting the personal philosophies of two blind men and their differing experiences living without vision.
In the Dark is interactive, imaginative, and sure to please even the most novice scientists.
