Science and Poetry projects Dan has worked on.
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, and is currently running in Manchester, London, and Canterbury, and is funded by Arts Council England.
“the packed out audience will never again doubt the validity of the two pursuits being combined” - Manchester Mule
