TV-famous Professor Brian Cox is coming to New Zealand to bring you on a cinematic space odyssey journey and celebrate the wonders of the universe. Presented by Lateral Events, the phenomenal stage tour called Horizons will run four shows in New Zealand this December. Originally, it was planned for February, but the dates were postponed due to COVID-19.
Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey
The two-hour showcase begins at 7.30pm. It will involve state-of-the-art LED screen technology whisking attendees away to different worlds, far-away galaxies, supermassive black holes and even a time before the Big Bang. Certainly, you’ll be left questioning your existence. Organisers dub Horizons the “most ambitious and spectacular scientific show” so far. Indeed, it is the immersive experience you can’t miss.
Additionally, Professor Cox will be joined on-stage by award-winning comedian Robin Ince. Together, they will celebrate our civilisation and provide an optimistic vision of the future. Using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, astronomy and more, Professor Cox will answer deep questions about the universe.
Furthermore, Professor Brian Cox stated about the upcoming Horizons show: “I’m very excited about what has emerged! I hope the evening will make people think about how fortunate and precious we are, how strange and wonderful our Universe is, and the limitless future we have to look forward to if we make the right choices over the coming decades.”
