A hilarious and informative romp through Antarctica’s fascinating past and present, telling stories of the bold and the bizarre that shaped the frozen continent.
Amateur historian and itinerant television globetrotter Te Radar presents Antarcticana, an illustrated comedic lecture on all things Antarctic. With a rich visual presentation of photographs, maps, film, and charmingly low-spec animations, Antarcticana proves that what we think we know about Antarctica is just the tip of the iceberg.
Te Radar asks the questions you never thought to ask and provides answers you never wanted to know about the land that Captain Robert Falcon Scott called “This Awful Place”. He also may shatter your illusions about the innocence of penguins.
Winner of both the Billy T Award, and the Fred Award for Comedy Excellence, and in 2017 he was awarded an honorary MA from Wintec for services to Media Arts.
This is a fundraising event for the rebuild of Te Ūaka The Lyttelton Museum. Gather friends or colleagues and book seats to enjoy the show. Thanks to Te Radar, the Christchurch Antarctic Office, ChristchurchNZ and Eventfinda for supporting this event.
