And he was cut down - poster

‘And He Was Cut Down’
Poetry reading, Music event
Penny Rimbaud and Eve Libertine with Kate Shortt
Thursday, 21 March 2019, 19:00-20:00

Abney Park, 215 Stoke Newington High Street, London N16 0LH
[Advance tickets] – £15 / £12 concs, includes a complimentary wine.
Entry at the main gates on Stoke Newington High St from 18:15-18:45. Latecomers will not be admitted.

And He Was Cut Down

An exclusive performance in the Abney Park Chapel for World Poetry Day, ‘And He Was Cut Down’, an epic poem by Penny Rimbaud, charts the fate of the risen saviour and those who rose beside him only to be cast away in the retreat from grace. Throughout the poem, Mary Magdalene pleads that there could and should have been a better way. ‘He was the wanderer, but my shadow pinned him down. He was the shaman, I the She. He was powerless against me, ripped and ragged by my force.’ Feminist in its instinct, this is an impassioned plea that human kindness might find its many ways of expression beyond the rebukes of cruel chastity and oblique prophesy. ‘He died yet would not die. She laid but could not lie nor cradle his body through time.’

Performed by Penny Rimbaud and Eve Libertine continuing a creative partnership forged when both were members of Crass. They will be joined on stage by cellist extraordinaire, Kate Shortt, in what promises to be a memorable and thought-provoking evening.

Conflict are an English anarcho-punk band originally based around Eltham in South London that formed in 1981. They have been described as the world’s most influential anarcho-punk band, along with Crass. They influenced the punk movement with their non-conventional approach to music and philosophy. Fierce, tense, cajoling and militant, the reverberation alone is enough to provoke an emotional response. They can be looked on as a combination of what The Clash and Crass could have been, all over a ferocious punk band. The history of rock music has always been intertwined with that of protest, from Bob Marley to Public Enemy, the Stones to the Pistols, etc. Conflict delivers the sound of timeless rebellion.
