"Gravel creates a bare beauty that resists aesthetic standards... Hats off."

- Voir, Montréal

In this dance performance/rock concert, Québec’s Frédérick Gravel ignites the stage with six explosive dancers, three live musicians and his joyously ironic commentary. Performed with immediacy and vitality, Gravel’s movement language is raw and inventive, and the captivating dancers pulse with emotional and sexual charge.

Gravel audaciously integrates popular culture and choreographic art, creating an invigorating and unpredictable ride you won’t forget.

Choreographer/dancer Gravel is part of an exciting wave of artists coming out of Québec.
