Loose Gravel—a poetics is a funny and philosophical performance essay by Noëlle Janaczewska
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.
