Baba Brinkman's Rap Guide to Consciousness

  • SoHo Playhouse 15 Vandam St. New York United States (map)

“Peer reviewed rapper” Baba Brinkman takes a deep dive into the neuroscience of human experience, from sensations to hallucinations. “Mind-blowingly, awe-inspiringly good” (Broadway Baby) Baba's brain consists of tens of billions of neurons, none of which has any idea that he exists. And yet somehow those cells come together to produce a steady stream of ill rhymes and laughs, giving the expression “dropping science” a whole new meaning. Once you’ve seen through the eyes of embryos, octopuses, and self-conscious robots, your sense of reality may not survive intact!
