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, Manchester, London, and Canterbury - and will be running at Chicago Botanic Garden in April 2018.
“the packed out audience will never again doubt the validity of the two pursuits being combined” - Manchester Mule
