Imagination is the door to identity. At least, that’s according to extraordinary scientist-artist performer team Nicola Clayton and Clive Wilkins. Over the course of this quirky and interactive evening, the pair will reveal why memory has evolved in the way that it has, incorporating magic, dance and scientific evidence. Nicky’s studies into animal behaviour shine light on the ways we think both with and without words, while artist and magician Clive questions aspects of consciousness, perception and reality through his myriad creative outputs. This lively event will incorporate live tango dancing, conjuring and plenty of opportunities for participation from you!
