With a life's work dedicated to upholding — and reinstating — human rights and democracy, Geoffrey Robertson has an indisputably impressive resume. The barrister, author and former human rights judge has garnered his worldly insights through defending the likes of Salman Rushdie and Julian Assange and founding the largest human rights practice in Europe. Fiercely defending lives on death row? Mentoring Amal Clooney? Assisting in the restoration of Fiji's democracy? All in a day's work for Robertson.

The legal heavyweight is bringing his live show, It's No Longer Hypothetical, to the Adelaide Festival Centre on Thursday, August 18. Audiences will go on a deep dive into Robertson's life and career, with him taking a closer look at the importance of returning museum collections to the cultural groups they were stolen from, the societal fallout seen in a fake-news era and the actions he's proposed for constitutional regeneration in Australia.

Whether you're a long-held fan of Robertson and his work or you're simply an inquisitive mind looking for insights into the state of the world, spending a night witnessing this Australian great command the stage is not to be missed.
