After a sell out Australian tour, Steve Backshall returns with his hit show Deadly 60 Pole to Pole Live!
Join Steve on his journey of wild discovery and dangerous entertainment, live on stage in Canberra this January.
Following his sold out 2016 Australian tour, Steve Backshall the star of one of the most popular children’s shows on the planet, is returning to Australia with a new show based on the hit BBC series, “Deadly 60 Pole to Pole”.
Come on a theatrical journey with Steve as he shares his experiences travelling from the South Pole to the North Pole, and his gripping encounters with deadly creatures from all corners of the globe.
Naturalist Steve Backshall is best known for a children’s TV show Deadly 60, in which he tracks down the world’s most dangerous animals. He’s swum with sharks, been bitten by a caiman and come face to face with some of the most venomous snakes on the planet.
From the Arctic to the Antarctic, from the tundra to the top of the world’s highest peaks, and from the depths of the rainforest to the bottom of the sea, this wonderful event is suitable for fans of the TV series as well as wildlife enthusiasts of all ages from five to eighty.
Steve is an author, expedition leader, naturalist, wildlife expert and a fearless presenter. Having travelled the world to learn about the most inspiring predators, Steve has been squirted with ink by Humboldt squid, flirted with by tarantula, charged by elephants, and stared out by thresher and great hammerhead sharks, but still maintains that wild animals pose no threat to people – in fact quite the opposite.
Steve has been passionate about the wild world ever since he could crawl, and, growing up, counted as his best pals the animals that lived around him – from the asthmatic donkey, to the grass snakes in the manure heap! After graduating from Exeter University in England, Steve studied martial arts in Japan, attaining his black belt. Over the following years, Steve wrote for the Indonesian Rough Guides and, during his travels, became conversant in the local language, drank blood with un-contacted tribes, nearly got caught in fatal crossfire in riots in East Timor, came nose to nose with Komodo Dragons, and attempted to walk solo across Irian Jaya (a woeful failure)!
