Details

Rhyme, Rhythm and Reason.

Biology meets balladry, physics encounters pentameter, and chemistry confronts cadence as Kent's leading scientists are paired with Canterbury's finest spokenword artists – and challenged to create new microperformances.

The result? A diverse display of rhyme, rhythm and reason, which celebrates the creative similarities between science and the performing arts.

Hosted by scientific poet and former Canterbury Laureate Dan Simpson and poetry slam-winning scientist Dr. Sam Illingworth, this will be an evening of precise delights and unexpected insights.
