Immortality in Adelaide

Thursday 16th February 2017, 6.30-8.00pm

The Science Exchange

55 Exchange Place Adelaide

Tickets $20/$15 via FRINGETIX

It was once said that nothing is certain in life except death and taxes. While the tax office will still get their cut, the grim reaper’s job is looking less secure.

The life expectancy of Australians has grown by 10 years since the 1970s and some believe the first person to live to 1000 has already been born, but how will this be achieved?

We will hear from three amazing experts, all trying to cheat death in their own special way. Through mapping the code of life to bring back extinct species in the future; by creating artificial organs to prolong life and avoid aging; by suspending life until technologies exist to cure diseases, bring us back to life and allow us to live as immortals; and so much more.

Parasites Lost

Friday 17th  and Saturday 18th February 2017, 8.00pm

The Science Exchange

55 Exchange Place Adelaide

Tickets $25/$22 via FRINGETIX

You're never alone, when you've got a parasite. Ten years of working in Asia and Africa, Alanta has seen a few things. And eaten a few things. And yelled her lunch into not an inconsequential number of toilets. Not a show for the faint of heart.

Parasites Lost is equal parts scientific, entertaining and comedic. It tempers the educational elements of a TED talk with hilarious anecdotes and the occasional moments of potty humour. This show is an informative and pathos-addled adventure both across the globe and under the microscope.

Discover brain-controlling fungi, living Hollywood beauty treatments, and parasites living right under your nose. Literally, under your nose. Right now. This show is a unique opportunity to learn about the secret life of some of the most ingenious organisms, from someone who's played host to them. Alanta Colley is a public health practitioner, a comedian, and a bee-keeper. This is her debut solo Show.
