UCR Student Success Center, Multipurpose Rooms 1 & 2
HANDFUL OF GRAVEL is a live performance of US Poet Laureate Emeritus Juan Felipe Herrera's poetry about the War in Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic. It features music, dance, voice, and screen imagery created by Herrera with a cast of performers who include UCR students and faculty. Departing from previous conceptions of poetry, this production presents poems as dynamic planes directly entangled in dance transmissions and vocal exchange within a radical field in global space. It proposes that all things are related and influence each other.
