Warning: this production contains loud music and fog effects.

An iPad for music, speakers, projectors. A chair, a few pairs of shoes, whisky, water, and glasses. Frédérick Gravel, whose talent and audacity cross borders, joins the fierce and fiery Brianna Lombardo in this intimate and electrifying show. At the controls of an exhilarating playlist, the multidisciplinary artist is spreading his rock vision of the inexhaustible theme of love. They look at each other, play, dance for each other, creating a tableau in which movement portrays the poetry of everyday life.

“Their union is fragile and outrageous, expressing with clarity the rage and flames of passion. Both sweet and rugged, this show is intensely beautiful”
—Toute La Culture (Paris)

“The world we’re in is really polished…When everything is going really wrong, everything’s really polished—and the media and the politicians can’t have any doubt. It’s about not showing doubt and vulnerability. So on-stage we really have to be vulnerable. If we are not able to do it in that protected space, we aren’t gonna be able to do it anywhere else” — Frédérick Gravel, in interview with The Georgia Straight
