The Dance Apocalypse, a new dance by Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler, is La Jetée meets Quebecois line dancing. Within a set of comedic backdrops, the dance explores the nature of creative collaboration, shedding light on tensions and delights in relation to art-making.
Revlock shares a solo version of this collaborative effort as part of NYLA’s Fresh Tracks Residency Showing.
The event is free but reservations are strongly encouraged.
