Join Risk/Reward for a year-end celebration and special video screening of this one-of-a-kind dance/performance/rock mashup by Montreal-based artist Frédérick Gravel. 

WATCH THE VIDEO TRAILER

Following in the grand Montreal dance tradition of La La La Human Steps and Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Frédérick Gravel and his hot-blooded team of dancers/musicians mix genres in a performance where philosophy meets the dancefloor. Unstoppable physicality, live music and a pop-culture aesthetic work to create a profound rumination on sex and love.

Frédérick Gravel is a dancer, choreographer, guitarist, singer and lighting designer known for playfully challenging the paradigms of the dance field. His works eschew mannerism and focus on physical intensity, raw virtuosity and everyday movement (with a bit of nudity, sexuality and rock and roll thrown in for good measure). He is one of the brightest lights in the Montreal dance constellation.
