A Fork And Stick Thing
A Fork And Stick Thing is a highly rhythmic duet with music created by Jacob Mitas and Justin Moynihan in collaboration with Gabrielle Revlock. It's about the alien body. The movement is crisp yet clunky and full of hiccups. The dancers cuddle abstractly. It is an amusement ride; combo tea cups and roller-coaster.
I made this for you.
I made this for you is a raucous, playful yet earnest dance about audience engagement created by Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler, for a national dance competition with audience votes determining the winner. The dance challenges notions of competition and conventional forms of beauty by using biting wit and playful commentary. It will feature a number of exciting things such as wrestling, romance, babies and (sur) PRIZES! Next stop Pittsburgh, PA. Details TBA.

". . .one of the most enjoyable dance pieces I have seen in years."
-Brett T Mapp, Executive Director of Making a Positive Philadelphia
An intimate duet for dancer and hoop. The woman manipulates the hoop yet at times appears to be controlled by it. As the dance unfolds, it conjures images of loneliness, entrapment, and surrender.
"Revlock’s thoughtful construction of each action coupled with her assured, doe-eyed presence lent an affecting quality" -Beau Hancock, ThINKing Dance
Gabrielle loves to clap. Clapping makes her happy. Hula hooping also makes her happy. . .but Gabrielle is not a happy person. Come meet Gabrielle and her friends.
