The Dance Apocalypse

Projects created by Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler from 2011-2021.

Stage Performances

The Dance Apocalypse/Solos

This piece is a radical challenge to the paltry circumstances in which artists seek funding and a heart wrenching end-of-the-world love story with pizazz. It includes clitoral embodiment, taxidermy hats, a fundraising campaign and true confessions. 


A combination of circumstances (travel, funding, curiosity) caused the duo to pull apart their previous work, The Dance Apocalypse (see description below) divvying up the material into two solos. Revlock performs The Dance Apocalypse/Fundraiser and Bindler performs The Dance Apocalypse/Class.* The solos bring focus to Revlock and Bindler as individuals and provide personal and sometimes contradictory perspectives on their tumultuous relationship.


*In truth they aren't really solos at all because they two halves fit together, commenting on, contradicting and supporting each other.

The Dance Apocalypse

The Dance Apocalypse takes place within the context of a director’s commentary, a sensationalist talk show and a million-dollar kickstarter campaign for a feature length film. Within these comedic backdrops, the dance explores the nature of creative collaboration between Revlock and Bindler– shedding light on tensions and delights in relation to art-making and to each other as female artists in a spectacle-driven world.
