The times they are a changin'; you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone; should I stay or should I go?

It's been coming for an age, and soon it will be upon us. Yes, the end of the Horse Hospital's 25th anniversary series is nigh, but our concerns here lie in a realm somewhat less joyful. It does not need to be mouthed. We don't agree with it but we can certainly challenge its happening with a night of passionate mixed media poetry, salary-free shenanigans and the cream of the counter-cultural crop when it comes to the activist incantators we need - all too often - to remind us that the human is not only an auto-destructive, eco-destructive mind/meat rampage.

So, join us to sample the celluloid shimmer of a constellation of talents from what we call 'The Benassi Nexus'. Then open your head to the utterances of remarkable readers and performers until you find the ears in your feet and start shuffling to the psych-folk sonics of The Vardanettes.

Do attend to find out more, as talents spoken, sung, performed, projected and more agitate and celebrate and incarnate other ways of being that will bring you solace, insight and righteous anger-fuel in varied but constant measure. If you are a poem in your own becoming, and longing to join the verse of collective meaning, we shall meet you in the field beyond all that obstructs us. When it comes down to it, you're either with us or against us. There's a (red) line in the sand. Will you cross it?

Curated by Louis Benassi with Gareth Evans.
