The Vortex – 27th June
Penny Rimbaud’s Last Amendment presents Reason Veils the Absurd. Following a five year recluse in the metaphorical woodshed, Rimbaud returns to the Vortex on a quarterly residency feeling ‘none the wiser and all the better for it’. Expect a heady mix of musings, magnificence, nonsense, improv, outprov, fusion, confusion, poetry and jazz. Standing (and oftimes falling) at the forefront of the neo-romantic avant-garde, Rimbaud is joined this evening by co-conspirators Eve Libertine (vox), Charles Webber (signal generators), Louise Elliott (sax’n’flute), Kate Shortt (cello), Jennifer Maidman (bass), Gene Calderazzo (drums) and Gee Vaucher (visuals).
