Experimental Words

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Biology meets balladry, physics encounters free verse and chemistry confronts cadence, as leading scientists are paired with some of Manchester’s finest spoken-word artists to compete in a science slam show. The result? A diverse display of rhyme, rhythm and reason, which celebrates the creative similarities between science and the performing arts. Delivered by scientific poet Dan Simpson and poetic scientist Sam Illingworth – and run in conjunction with Evidently, Salford’s premier spoken word night – this year’s Experimental words aims to build on the tremendous success of last year’s sold-out event.
