Frédérick Gravel/Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup

Artistic Director: Frédérick Gravel
Member since: 2009

Choreographer, dancer, musician and lighting designer Frédérick Gravel has been active on the Montreal scene for the past ten years. He turns the structures of choreography upside down, merging into his work various elements from rock and performance art. Gravel Works (2008), Tout se pète la gueule chérie (2010), Usually Beauty Fails (2012), This Duet That We’ve Already Done (so many times) (2015), Some Hope for the Bastards (2017) and the creation Thus Spoke… co-created with the author Étienne Lepage, have received great national and international reviews. He also act as co-director for Logique du pire (2016). The works of Frédérick Gravel are created in close collaboration with all members of Grouped’ArtGravelArtGroup/GAG, a shifting collective of dancers and musicians actively involved in the creation process. He was also the choreographer of the show Mutantès (2008) by Pierre Lapointe, directed by Claude Poissant, and collaborated on the creation of Amours, délices et orgues (2017), along with Étienne Lepage and Sophie Cadieux, at the FrancoFolies (Montreal).  

More and more active as a teacher, Frédérick Gravel regularly gives creative workshops as well as teaching at CÉGEP Saint-Hyacinthe’s theater department, at Université du Québec à Montréal and at l’École de danse contemporaine de Montréal.

Frédérick Gravel is an associate creator at DLD – Daniel Léveillé Danse, from which he receives development and touring support.
