Media Coverage

 

“[Frédérick Gravel’s] shows feel like something new and real.”

Janet Smith, Straight.com, 2016-06-22, about Usually Beauty Fails

 

 

“Frédérick Gravel is arguably the most significant dance artist to emerge in Quebec in the past 10 years. He produces dance theatre – a combination of text and movement – that is sly and subversive.”

Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail, 2014-08-12, about Thus Spoke…

« Rares sont les chorégraphes de danse contemporaine qui réussissent à faire frétiller les ados autant que les critiques les plus férus du genre. »

Fabienne Cabado, Voir, 2016-05-24

 

 

« Aussi bien au Québec qu’à l’étranger, Frédérick Gravel a marqué les esprits avec ses concerts chorégraphiques et son univers d’énergie bouillonnante, de crudité sexuelle et de désinvolture ironique. »

Nayla Naoufal, Le Devoir, 2015-11-07
