Paul Stubbs and Blandine Longre join us from Paris, and Sean Bonney visits from Berlin. Poet and musician Penny Rimbaud has composed an original piece for the evening, channelling Rimbaud ‘through the ears of John Coltrane and the eyes of Jackson Pollock’. He is accompanied on saxophone by Louise Elliot.
Rimbaud spent just over a year in London in the early 1870s, living with poets Paul Verlaine, in Soho, Fitzrovia and Mornington Crescent, and Germain Nouveau, on the South Bank in Stamford Street.
