Choreographer, dancer, musician and lighting designer Frédérick Gravel has been active on the Montreal scene for the past ten years.

Gravel Works (2008), All Hell is Breaking Loose, Honey (2010), Usually Beauty Fails (2012), This Duet That We’ve Already Done (so many times) (2015), Some Hope for the Bastards (2017) as well as Thus Spoke… and Logique du pire created in collaboration 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. Frédérick 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, which was presented at Francos de Montréal.
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.
