Baba Brinkman’s Rap Guide To Consciousness (Soho Playhouse Inc)

By | Published on Friday 11 August 2017

What is consciousness? How do we know what we think we know, and how do we know we even exist? The only peer-reviewed rapper you’re likely to find at the festival, Baba Brinkman is here to try to explain via some witty and informative rapping. Taking some pretty complex concepts, Brinkman breaks them down into understandable chunks, to give a flavour of the science behind what it means to be conscious, with a little help from some diagrams. From Donald Trump to octopuses, dogs and his baby son Dylan, Brinkman explores the different ways we experience the world around us, offering up some fascinating scientific findings. If you’re looking for something a little different, Brinkman is well worth a visit.

Assembly George Square Studios, until 28 Aug.
