Penny Rimbaud - The Vortex - The Pity of War

Penny Rimbaud, Liam Noble, Gee Vaucher. ‘The Pity of War: the complete war poems of Wilfred Owen’ – 25 March 2016

The Vortex, 11 Gillett Square, London, N16 8AZ, 18:00-23:30

‘THE PITY OF WAR’, the complete war poems of Wilfred Owen recited by Penny Rimbaud with Liam Noble on piano and visuals by Gee Vaucher.

In memory not of victory but of the terrible darkness brought by war; in memory of those on both sides of the divide who died for their leaders & the illusions that they were fed.

Penny Rimbaud is known as the author of countless books, both of poetry and polemic, as well as a founder member of the iconic group Crass.

Liam Noble is perhaps the most iconic pianist ever to grace the Vortex stage. Lyricism, imagination and oblique humour merge seamlessly.

Gee Vaucher’s images are unforgettable. They etch themselves on your mind forever.
