Alistair Wilson talks us through the L’Art Pour L’Art and the UoE
Music Socities’ newest event
Strip down your mental diary and relieve yourself of any heaviness, both academic or otherwise. The UoE L’Art Pour L’Art and UoE Music Societies offer the Colchester campus a unique, sweet treat that marries poetry with live – A Muse in Melody. The event, hosted in the Hexagon on the 18th March with doors opening at 19:00, promises to satisfy the appetites of so many students and staff, who hunger for an evening of creative expression. Natascha Rimo explains what we can expect:
“A muse in melody: The muse is the poet. The melody is the band. Join us in The Hexagon to hear a conversation between the poets and the musicians.”Natascha Rimo
But are we not all rebels with a cause nowadays Natascha? A Muse in Melody believes so, supporting some of Colchester’s most vulnerable people through the Colchester Night Shelter. L’Art Pour L’Art or ‘Art for Art’s sake’ promises excellent music and a platform for some of the best poets on campus.
They live among us, so go find them! And remember to bring your own wine and beer, because a poet’s musings taste so much better when splashed with red wine.
“Wander through a time lapse of undistinguished, overheard musicians and poets in that land of lost circuits”Natascha Rimo
Tickets are £3 and you can get them at the door from 18:30. BYOB.
