poets + audience interaction =
no river twice
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 group of poets who offer poetry readings in which audiences and poets actively interact, poem by poem, to decide the direction of the performance from beginning to end, co-creating a reading that is never the same twice. We don't improvise poems, just everything else. Selections, themes, and tone are a surprise and discovery to all of us. And we make a poem of it!
...meaning is the river/of voices...
