We are delighted to welcome back to The Crescent the Imagine as they bring to the stage another incredible festival.
Imagine is a unique festival designed to excite people’s minds and passions in an inspiring annual programme of performance, discussion and debate. It is a high quality showcase for new ideas on politics, culture and activism in Northern Ireland.
Back on the road with an artist’s manifesto of delight and curiosity, Robin Ince is a multi-award winning comedian and broadcaster. The Sony Gold and Rose d’Or are just two of the awards he has won for his hugely popular Radio four series, The Infinite Monkey Cage. He was nominated for best live show at the British Comedy awards, received the Time Out award for outstanding contribution to comedy and has three Chortle awards.
He is the proud winner of Pointless Celebrities and is the author of numerous books, most recently How to Build a Universe Part One, written with Professor Brian Cox, and I’m a Joke and So Are You.
In this show, Robin mashes up the two cultures of art and science in this celebration of the human mind from Bohemians to Black Holes, Dali to DNA, in another of his stand up sort of lectures!
