This Duet That We’ve Already Done (so many times) At The Cultch November 27 to December 1st

21 Nov

ThisDanceYou are invited to an intriguing dance performance This Duet That We’ve Already Done (so many times).   Think an iPad for music, speakers, projector, 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 an 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. For tickets to this breathtaking production, visit The Cultch.

“Their union is fragile and outrageous, expressing with clarity the rage and
flames
of passion. Both sweet and rugged, this show is intensely beautiful”

All Hell Is Breaking Loose At The Cultch November 8-12

7 Nov

allhell_landscape-davest-pierreNow that we have your attention, we think more than the title of this show will get your attention. All Hell is Breaking Loose features four male dancers who plan to deconstruct the typical North American stereotypes of men. That being, the t-shirt wearing, beer swilling baseball crazed with the occasional violent outburst. Then add to that the confusion of some men and oh, the mood swings not just reserved for women. The show choreographed by Frederick Gravel explores masculinity through dance and music.  The show kicks off Tuesday, November 8th at the Historic Theatre in The Cultch and runs to November 12th.  Tickets start at $20 and are available online via The Cultch. Please note, this show does contain male nudity.

What people are saying about All Hell Breaking Loose:

“An explosive exploration of masculinity that is half dance, one quarter performance art, and one quarter rock show”
The Ottawa Citizen

“A show that exacerbates the beauty of the complaint as the cry, howl desperate and beautiful from the injured animal.”
Paris Art (Paris, France)
