poetry +  improvisation


our mission:

To create invigorated, communal poetry readings where audiences participate actively with a group of poets to determine the direction, theme, subject, tone of each reading, creating a new experience on each occasion; and to promote and encourage the art and craft of poetry as a connective, playful, and communal experience.

"No one steps in the same river twice, because it's not the same river and they're not the same person." 


No River Twice is a multi-vocal, improvisational poetry reading and collaboration in which audience and poets interact to decide the direction of the performance from beginning to end, poem by poem, co-creating a reading that is truly never the same event twice. We don't improvise the poems, just everything else. Selections, order, themes and tone are a surprise to all of us.
