RIVET VI: with Rob Halpern, Sophie Robinson, & Lauren Vevers.
RIVET. presents an evening of poetry and performance, with a cross-atlantic visitor!
'Halpern was as fearless as they came in 2012. His stunning third collection was both statement and experiment - a gruesome, erotic, studied, unflinching dissection of the ways that violence, sex, and social order tear at each other. Halpern uses the body as a battleground, and the solider as a stand-in for a range of repressed (and fulfilled) desires.'
"Being my body where yr odor clings I hang
In excess of the system where we're caught"
Author of 'The Institute of our Love in Disrepair', former poet in residence at the V&A, lecturer at UEA, pedagogue, & organiser of poetry nite 'FEELINGS' in East London.
"o bum! o joy! o bloated world!
what dreams i am on the stairs of!"
