Gabrielle Lamb, winner of a 2014-15 Princess Grace Award for Choreography, was a longtime soloist at Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and in 2009 was invited by Christopher Wheeldon to join his company Morphoses in New York.
She has won choreographic competitions at Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Milwaukee Ballet, and Ballet Austin as well as, in 2014, the Banff Centre's Lee Award and a New York City Center Choreography Fellowship.
"Recently journalist Deirdre Kelly of DANCE Magazine asked me for a choreographer's perspective on ballet's body image issues. She only needed a short quote, but once I started writing I couldn't stop."
" The jewel of the evening was Tessellations, by Gabrielle Lamb. The nine dancers were at their best doing this contemporary work.....They moved through the engaging choreography with understanding and confidence. ."
