Saturday 9th May
8pm – Midnight
Open School East 43 De Beauvoir road, London. N1 5SQ

all-drum . all-live . all-female . all-loud

“warped sexual assault statistics are pummelled under stick and foot, with all three members laying their catharsis upon a single drum kit. Yelped voices and vibrant playsuit colours project forth, as the group tip between skeletal punk, thunderous tribe and the brink of total collapse”– Jack Chuter, ATTN Magazine

After/Hours/Drop/Box invites Charismatic Megafauna for the first in a new series of live events in the basement space at Open School East.
Support comes in the form of selected video screenings, live contributions from Holly Pester & Emma Bennett and an all-female playlist by Sophie Risner.
Organised by current OSE associate artist John Lawrence, A/H/D/B initiates collaborative projects at the intersection of music, video and live performance.

Over more than 20 years, the American poet Jackson Mac Low composed his ‘Light Poems’, using a chart of 288 words for light. Twenty contemporary poets have responded to this chart, creating their own works, which will be performed here for the first time and published in an anthology available on the day.

Poetry by Tim Atkins, Emma Bennett, Patrick Coyle, Sarah Crewe, Amy Cutler, Inua Ellams, Stephen Emmerson, SJ Fowler, Edmund Hardy, Colin Herd, Dorothy Lehane, Sophie Mayer, Chris McCabe, Mendoza, Tamarin Norwood, Redell Olsen, Holly Pester, Nat Raha, Philip Terry and James Wilkes.

Produced and edited by James Wilkes. With thanks to Anne Tardos.
