I made this for you. (From the A.W.A.R.D. Show!)
In the world premiere of Confetti, Gabrielle Revlock investigates “two-ness” in a series of overlapping duets. Joined by a virtuosic hip hop dancer, a child, her very own mother and more, Revlock relates, reacts and opposes through a series of quirky, interlocking narratives. January 24-25, 2014 at the Annenberg Center for the Performing Art. Tickets here.
The Dance Apocalypse
The Dance Apocalypse is a duet created by Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler. Taking the form of a Directors' Commentary, the audience will experience the dance as if peering through a camera lens -- zooming in to our intimate musings and exchanges, out to a large film screen, and back in again. The result is a forceful commentary on our relationship to art-making and to each other as female artists in a spectacle-driven world.

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.

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
