Red Lineage is the title of an original poem, adapted to allow others to personalize their own versions. When performed, these poems echo and overlap, thereby fostering a sense of community despite real and/or perceived social and demographic barriers. Within the Red Lineage, everyone is red—a metaphor that invokes the idea of the bloodline. This interactive poem has been shared and presented locally and internationally as part of Miko Kuro’s Midnight Tea. Submit your own via the project website: www.redlineage.com.
