Frédérick Gravel is the rock star of Canadian contemporary dance, displaying a fresh, new, hip and exciting dynamic.  Together, the brilliant writer Étienne Lepage and Frédérick Gravel have concocted a pop piece that is cheeky and devilishly sexy.  From Nietzsche to Hendrix, Thus Spoke shifts in jolts from scathing diatribe to rock and roll celebration, from electrifying harangue to laid-back clam, striking a good smack to the face of conformism.
