“Cheerfully combining Chopin and PJ Harvey with spirited candour, jumping from one style to another and turning the dramatic structure topsy-turvy, the choreographer demonstrates how to construct a good contemporary dance piece, and then moves on to something else. […] In the end, the spectator gets caught up in this crazy choreography.” (Danser, Paris, France)

For this new work, Frédérick Gravel will present an irreverent, crazy, musical and poetic piece that follows in the path of Gravel Works and Tout se pète la gueule chérie, which were met with acclaim both here and in Europe. A declaration of ambiguous love for popular culture and the high culture of dance, the piece is performed by 8 dancers/musicians who break loose to the music of Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup and the trenchant words of Gravel. Given his previous work and his intelligent, unpretentious approach to dance, it should prove to be a coherent, casual and invigorating piece.

November 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 2012
Cinquième Salle, Place des Arts
A Danse Danse / Place des Arts co-presentation
