Event Type

Reading Experiment in Progress, an interactive collaboration hosted by Red Rover Series, will involve any writers who wish to participate.  Our goals are to foster innovative forms, aesthetic solidarities, and a multifarious performance with this year’s NOPF community so all have the opportunity to improvise in live space and time together.  We will continue to recruit collaborators up to the start of the 2024 festival.  During this event, every audience member is a potential performer.  Writers are invited to bring one stanza or paragraph to read/perform connected to the question “How can we create change in the world right now?”  Language collects.  Pieces of paper emerge and fall to the floor.  The performance keeps going until our time is up.  Red Rover Series has hosted similar large-scale readings for AWP, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the MLA conference, the &NOW Festival, and past New Orleans Poetry Festivals.
