“I have three problems: capitalism, the patriarchy and why art can’t manage to save us.” Canadian choreographer Frédérick Gravel peels back the layers of his psyche, unveiling his fears and unleashing the monster of greed in an exposing solo. Seamlessly shifting between dance, song and self-therapy, he is joined by a rock band in the shadows and left to confront his emotions in the spotlight. In a charged performance he transforms the anxiety that throws us off balance into an honest attempt at reconnecting with the world.
