The Free Fringe Opening Night Party Includes Live Music and Performers

The slightly staid Science Exchange is set to become a playful place during this year's Adelaide's Fringe Festival.

While the Science Exchange strives to educate us for most of the year as Australia's national science hub, the emphasis on education will turn to looking at humorous ways that we interact with science during the Fringe.

Fringe Opening Night Party

Things kick off on Friday February 14 at the Science Exchange with a free opening night party from 6pm until 11.30pm. The RiAus bar will be open and after the Fringe Parade ends a selection of entertainers will be put on a live music show to remember, with singers Life in Letters, Heath Anthony. and Ry Kemp performing on the night.

Other Fringe artists will give you a taste of what to expect from their shows during the Festival including John Hinton from Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking and The Nerdlesque girls from Bazinga! Nerdlesque Nights. More performance artists are planned but details haven't yet been released at time of writing.

Entertain Your Brain - Weekend Shows February 20-22

Over the weekend of February 20-22 RiAus has secured some special local, interstate and international acts. One of my favourites is comedian Flacco who will try to answer the questions What's funny about science? A brief history of timing?

There's a Free Beer Show (which isn't free, but is about beer), free film showings of The Serene Universe, and a funny live science show called Rough Science which promises to be both.

Insight Radical: Where Science Meets Art

This free art exhibition is the culmination of a unique project started in 2012 involving six artists: Tony Lloyd, Steve Lopes, Anna Madeleine, Natalie O'Connor, Peter Sharp and Ruth Waller, and nine scientists.

The artists use a variety of media to demonstrate their interpretation of the topic of free radicals. Free radicals are essential for life, but paradoxically also cause ageing and our inevitable demise, and this exhibition promises to take visitors on a thought provoking journey considering the impact of free radicals in their lives. With the combined insights of artists and scientists, it will be fascinating to see the results.

The Insight Radical: Where Science Meets Art exhibition runs throughout the Adelaide Fringe from Friday February 14 until Saturday May 31. It's being held at the Future Space art gallery in the basement of the character-filled former Adelaide Stock Exchange Building, which has held previous exhibitions from Fab Lab Adelaide and the Incredible Inner Space Exhibition.

Find out more on the Insight Radical exhibition website.

What fun. Best way to teach someone about something is to make it creative, humorous and interesting, and these events that you have written about promise to be all that. Excellent.
