“Clearly, Gravel is heading for greatness on the Canadian dance scene.” Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail
- ≈ 1 hour and 30 minutes · No intermission
Text, live music, and movement – these are the three elements with which Frédérick Gravel performs a kind of creative alchemy. A major force on the Quebec dance scene for over a decade, Gravel’s vigorous, uncensored, brutally honest collaborations reflect the gutsy curiosity and quirky intelligence that push him constantly to interrogate the state of being human. Seeking beauty in the cracks between what we show and what we live, Gravel electrifies audiences with dance that is rock ‘n’ roll sexy and in the moment.
