Each episode of Couplets is a unique blend of collaborative writing, collaborative performance, and live dialogue. Two poets, locked in mortal struggle and/or collegial mentorship for an entire month, plot an evening of response poems, renga, duets, live interview, writing exercises, shouting matches, elaborate period-costume satire, and utterly net-less poetic tennis. For one night only, they present this collaboration to you. Live! In full colour and surround-sound!

Admission is free. All donations go to the poets.
