SCIENCE and art are set to be fused at a Southampton festival featuring world-class speakers and members of innovative theatre companies.
FULCRUM, run by Nuffield Theatre, returns for a second year and will be led by Ray Davies (The Kinks) with Music and Memory.
He will discuss the connection between music, memory and sense of self, alongside Dr Tim Wildschut, a psychologist from the University of Southampton.
Critically-acclaimed company Little Bulb Theatre will present a musical performance-in-development, entitled Wail, which takes inspiration from cutting-edge research into the song patterns of humpback whales.
FULCRUM festival is on Friday and Saturday at the Nuffield Theatre. For the full festival schedule go online at nuffieldtheatre.co.uk.
