Biology and plant science meet balladry, as five Chicago Botanic Garden scientists are paired with incredible spoken-word artists from Young Chicago Authors and RHINO 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.

Experimental Words is the premier performance project from Manchester, U.K.-based scientist Sam Illingworth, Ph.D., and poet Dan Simpson.
