“We step out of our solar system, into the universe, seeking only peace and friendship…”

So says the message from the human race on the Voyager spacecraft. But is there, y’know, anyone out there? I really wanted to know, so I went to speak to an astrophysicist to find out.

This is what I found out: Stellar Wobble. The Mirror Test. The Drake Equation. Fermi’s Paradox. Enhanced humans and murderous dolphins.

Somewhere between stand-up comedy and an astrophysics lecture, 600 People is a simple show about huge ideas. This honest, intelligent performance explores how we think about evolution and intelligence, belief and invention, communication and space travel. It looks at the stories we tell in order to understand our place in the cosmos and asks what it means to be human.

We said they were big ideas…

MUSIC: JIM CAUSLEY - 'AN EVENING WITH JIM CAUSLEY'
Multi-award winning folk singer, Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer. This show offers beautiful singing, moving ballads and hilarious ditties. Jim draws upon traditional repertoire, modern songs, his own compositions and settings of celebrated Cornish poet Charles Causley’s work. Accompanied on piano/accordions and served with a gurt dollop of West Country humour.
 
An immensely warm, engaging and humorous performer, Jim Causley has been nominated six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award and last year as Singer of the Year. His unique voice and persona have helped him become one of the most well-loved and respected figures in the contemporary folk scene, and his warm-hearted, inclusive stage presence makes for a great night’s entertainment.
