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 live! In full colour and surround-sound!
Admission is free. All donations go to the poets.
