Congratulations & Loose Gravel ...
Huge congratulations from 7-ON to Lee Lewis who has just been appointed Artistic Director of the Griffin Theatre Company.
I’m in Brisbane at the moment—this is Noëlle, BTW—and in case you are too, I’m presenting a version of my performance essay Loose Gravel—a poetics this Thursday 30 August at 4:00 pm at the Geoffrey Rush Drama Studio, University of Queensland St Lucia campus. The piece lasts just over half and hour and it’s free, no need to book.
Here’s some info about the piece:
Loose Gravel—a poetics is about gravel and its kin. About ripping stuff out of the ground, and the language that moves in to fill up the gap. It’s a funny and philosophical performance essay about uncertainty as a defining feature of contemporary life. About the materials of the imagination, and the pitfalls and rich disorder of being an associative thinker. It’s about crap places, and growing up in a crap place whose best-known exports are Cliff Richard, Victoria Beckham—and yes, gravel.
