Conceived by Gabrielle Revlock
Choreographed by Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler
Original music by Jacob Mitas
Live music by Dan Blacksberg and Lily Savage
Premiere recorded at the Arts Bank in Philadelphia.
Inspired by and created for the AWARD Show!, “I made this for you” turns “audience engagement” on its head. Nicole, seated in the audience pre-show, texted me the names of audience members so we could reference them onstage. When the dance “begins” she hobbles onstage with crutches.
An adaptable dance, “I made this for you” changes to reference the circumstances where it is presented. It no longer directly references the AWARD Show! Additions include an embedded talkback; rotating acts from trapeze to tango; a car that drives into the theater; and a final dance party that invites the audience onstage.
Choreographed by Gabrielle Revlock
Performed by Bonnie Friel, Gregory Holt and Gabrielle Revlock
Live original music by Julius Masri
Set design by architect Justin Gebhard
Props by sculptor Jesse Greenberg

“SHARE!” premiered in 2009 as part of the nEW Festival. This recording is from a re-staging of the work presented by Philadelphia Dance Projects at the Performance Garage in November 2011.
“SHARE!” is a reflection on my generation’s obsession with sharing personal details and the consequent impediments to intimacy.
Excerpt from the October 2011 show at the Performance Garage, Philadelphia, PA.
"I made this for you." is a raucous, playful yet earnest dance about audience engagement and community building. The dance was conceived of by Gabrielle Revlock for The A.W.A.R.D. Show and was co-choreographed by Nicole Bindler and Gabrielle Revlock. The A.W.A.R.D. Show is a national dance competition with audience votes determining the winner. “I made this for you.” challenges notions of competition and conventional forms of beauty by using biting wit and playful commentary.
"...refreshing originality, brilliance in conception and raunchy entertaining fun" -- Jonathan Stein, The Broad Street Review
Excerpt Performers: Nicole Bindler, Gabrielle Revlock and Sean Roswell
