Internationally renowned hip-hop storyteller Baba Brinkman is coming to Melbourne this weekend with his multi-award winning show A Rap Guide to Evolution.

Although originally scheduled to perform two shows only (Friday 6 and Saturday 7 June) as part of a national tour, due to a huge demand for tickets a third and final show has opened up on Saturday 7 at 8:30pm.

This hyper-literate science rapper (with a Masters in Medieval and Renaissance English Literature), has recently completed a five month sold-out season of The Rap Guide To Evolution Off Broadway. The show includes Brinkman’s own clever works as well as re-workings of popular rap singles to illustrate natural selection, sexual selection and evolutionary psychology. A multi-media performance, complete with a live DJ (Jamie Simmonds) and epic audio-visual show is provocative, hilarious, intelligent and scientifically accurate – in Brinkman’s own words: “something completely new that no one had tried before.”

Book your tickets to the show before the final seats sell out!
