No River Twice is taking a winter break for January 2021
but the river is still moving under the ice!
Join us for new readings beginning again In February,
Stay safe, give care, keep heart!
"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.
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.
"I admit I was inspired! After the event, I actually ended up writing my first poem in years." --BCCC student
