Humans v Nature: Engineering FTW
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2012
Gadgets and old school mechanics celebrating the triumph of engineering over pesky nature: darkness, disease, gravity... From the team behind hit show Your Days Are Numbered: Maths of Death. Their last show drew sell-out crowds, debunking dodgy stats, media scares and overblown health panics. Now they're back to give the same irreverent treatment to Mother Nature and the mean tricks she pulls to try and keep humans in their place: the cave. See how engineering helps humanity defy nature and beat boredom into submission. Also: robots! Supported by R. A. Eng.
