February 10th, 2012

Wastepaper Theatre came into being on April 25, 1973, created by Providence, Rhode Island-based poets and playwrights James Schevill,  Edwin Honig, Keith Waldrop and Rosmarie Waldrop as an entirely nomadic, anarchic vehicle to explore new possibilities for the intersection of poetry and the theater. This month-long laboratory will examine visual as well as literary aspects of this collaborative late 1970s creative practice and its under-recognized contribution to the history of performance art in New England. in the space, Boston-based curator and critic Randi Hopkins will work collaboratively with poets, artists, students and the community at large to create and archive, oral history, and visual representation of the Wastepaper Theatre poets, their projects and the context in which they worked.
