Experimental Words

Biology meets balladry as leading scientists are paired with incredible spoken-word artists to collaborate on a new performance, celebrating the creative similarities between science and the performing arts. The result? A diverse display of rhyme, rhythm and reason. A project from Dr. Illingworth and Mr. Simpson.

Experimental Words has previously happened in Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Canterbury, and Chicago.
