Steve Backshall will be bringing the sea to the stage next Spring with his brand-new stage show, Ocean, coming to the iconic Ulster Hall on 04 April 2022!
Ocean is a love letter to the most exciting environment on our planet – and a great way to learn more about what we need to do to save our seas. Using stunts, experiments, props, cutting edge science and big-screen footage from his two decades in TV, Steve will bring the icons of the Big Blue to life.
Steve has been passionate about the wild world ever since he could crawl. Growing up, he counted the animals that lived around him as his best pals – from the asthmatic donkey to the grass snakes in the manure heap!
After university and armed with an idea for a television series, Steve headed out to Colombia. Whilst living in the jungle he wrangled snakes and ended up in a Colombian jail (through no fault of his own)! National Geographic Channel International bought the resultant video and Steve was taken on as ‘Adventurer in Residence’, producing, filming and presenting adventure and natural history programmes. Steve has circumnavigated the globe time and again, venturing into the Sinai desert, completing the Israeli paratrooper's selection course, catching anacondas, vipers and cobras and (perhaps the best job ever) making “The Ten Great Dives of the World”, for the long-running series ‘Earthpulse’.
Ocean fantastic opportunity for all the family to dive deep into the wonderful world beneath the waves!
