“Fred Gravel is com­plicit with the au­di­ence, thumb­ing his nose at the avant-garde, at the ex­clu­sive pre­serves of the elite. In lu­cid, off­hand fash­ion, he takes popular cul­ture and es­tab­lish­ment cul­ture out of their as­signed roles and brings them to­gether.” - Michèle Fe­b­vre for Fes­ti­val Tran­sAmériques

So­cio an­i­malus. Three mu­si­cians plugged into the power grid, six dancers ready to ex­plode, the en­ergy of Pop to in­ten­sify the beat, the en­ergy of de­sire to set things ablaze. Que­bec’s Frédérick Gravel ig­nites bod­ies and blows up the stage in a sur­re­al­ist and un­bri­dled metaphor about our relation to beauty, the shock of love and the chal­lenges of re­la­tion­ships.
