Penny Rimbaud’s L’ACADÉMIE DES VANITÉS. A show curated by poet, author and erstwhile Crass band founder Penny with poets, musicians, performers and artists. Penny’s shows are performed in an environment created by Crass’s artist Gee Vaucher.
Penny Rimbaud is one of England’s great rebel poets. Prolific author, founding member of the band Crass and fearless explorer of possibilities in life and art, Rimbaud has never been one to wallow in nostalgia. Over the three decades since Crass disbanded he has been involved with myriad arts projects, published over 14 books, and released music ranging from the free form jazz/spoken word agitations of The Last Amendment to last years ‘symphonic punk’ collaboration with The New Banalists. – The Quietus
