The March Hare

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm

“The origins of the March Hare provide a clue to the meaning of that term. The event was created to fulfil a social purpose. It was conceived as an enticement to bring people together. It reached out to people who did not think of themselves as poetry lovers and it promised them stimulation and entertainment.”

“The March Hare attempts to create the conditions under which it is the quality of the whole experience that is being sought, and it is being sought not just by the organizers and the performers but also by the patrons, who are made to feel that they are an integral part of the enterprise. A populist, democratic philosophy prevails. Traditional stories alternate with contemporary poems, emerging writers appear alongside established writers, local performers share the stage with performers from all over the world, and all of them are accorded the same courtesy. While long-term achievement may be given the nod of respect in the form of an extra two or three minutes at the podium, the time allotments are tight and more or less equal. There are no stars at the March Hare.”
