Rap artist and award-winning playwright Baba Brinkman returns to Vancouver for another Rap Guide installment – this time, presenting a very timely subject that re-trended right up immediately after the Trump-Clinton presidential debate – the science of global warming – in his new work, The Rap Guide to Climate Chaos!
Baba breaks down the politics, economics, and science of global warming, following its surprising twists from the carbon cycle to the energy economy. If civilization is a party in full swing, are the climate cops about to pull the plug? And what happens if we just let it rage? With scientists, activists, contrarians, and the Pope adding their voices to the soundtrack, get ready for a funny and refreshing take on the world’s hottest topic.
Enjoying international successes and off-Broadway runs, Baba Brinkman is widely known for his “Rap Guide” series, garnering acclaims and awards including a Scotsman Fringe First Award for The Rap Guide to Evolution and a Drama Desk Nomination for The Rap Guide to Religion. Bringing science to the masses with his unique hip-hop comedy theatrics, Baba is a recipient of the National Center for Science Education’s “Friends of Darwin Award”.
The Rap Guide to Climate Chaos which premiered in Edinburgh in 2015 and played a 6-month run off-Broadway in 2016 now comes to Vancouver for a very limited 2-day performance on October 12 and 13 at the Revue Stage in Granville Island as part of Theatre Wire’s 2016/17 Season.
