WITH WAVES, a collaborative performance hosted by Red Rover Series, will involve any poets at the festival who wish to participate. Poets are invited to read their lines, briefly overlapping with the lines of other performers, creating waves of language and moments of calm. Throughout the event poets will accompany their lines by rising and entering the stage area, then exiting and sitting in a sequence of repeating waves. We will continue to recruit collaborators up to the start of the 2019 festival. Our goals are to foster innovative forms, aesthetic solidarities, and a multifarious performance with this year’s NOPF community.
