Loose Gravel

"That was a head cracker dada festival of fun. I think it's wo/manditory that all banditories see these candidstories. Go you idiot and don't not be low went you go."

- Kirk Lynn, playwright, novelist, and co- founder of the Rude Mechanicals

"Contemplative, skilled, inventive, and often hilarious, the two-hour performance, collaboratively developed by the seven- member collective, was a heartening beginning to 2017."

- Jonelle Seitz, Fjord Review

"LOOSE GRAVEL is Raw, Edgy and Occasionally Brilliant"

- Broadway World

"...this no-holds-barred performance does contain moments of brilliance... and some impressive talent at the beginning of careers I'd be very interested to revisit a few years on down the road."

Loose Gravel: Bite Size

at Mi Casa Es Su Teatro

A site-specific physical theatre piece

Saturday, February 11th, 2017 3-4pm at 5109 Avenue H.

For this year’s Mi Casa Es Su Teatro, the Frank Wo/Men gave a condensed, site-adapted, bite-size encore of  some of Loose Gravel’s greatest hits.

About Mi Casa Es Su Teatro, a part of Frontera Fest:
Mi Casa Es Su Teatro is a day of site-based work performed in local homes and other surprising locales. For  decades, FronteraFest has invited local artists and residents to partner-up in creating this adventurous afternoon of  intimate and literally homegrown performances for the community. Every year Mi Casa is totally unique in style,  original in content, and reflects a specific swath of Austin’s landscape. This year’s festival was curated by theatre  artist Patrick Shaw, and movement artist Hassan Christopher, which took place in the Hyde Park neighborhood.
