Sunday, November 15th
Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler
Clitoral Embodiment


Clitoral Embodiment®
In this workshop we will study the embryology of the urogenital system and the embryological homologues between the male and female (or intersex) genitalia. We will embody these structures and differentiate them from the surrounding musculoskeletal structures through somatic movement investigation and dance improvisation. Check out Bindler’s blog post about it.

In addition to Clitoral Embodiment the duo is also teaching CardioCreativity on Saturday, Nov 14, 3:30-5:30pm.

Performances by Gabrielle Revlock & Nicole Bindler/The Dance Apocalypse will occur November 13-15, 7pm at AUX Performance Space

The Dance Apocalypse (Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler) is a Philadelphia-based company that makes dances with you and for you that transcend the border between audience and stage. Their work is fiercely feminist, wild, and genre defying. They use movement, text, video, stage combat and comedy to create a sensorial extravaganza. They are particularly interested in the Q and A format as performance; critiquing spectacle and competition in contemporary dance; collaboration as a practice and lifestyle. They do not shy away from using animals and babies to charm your pants off. Their work has been frequently described as joyfully disorienting. They have performed their collaborative work throughout Philadelphia, New York, D.C., Pittsburgh and Seattle. Their dances have been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, FringeArts and The A.W.A.R.D. Show!

Gabrielle Revlock, co-creator of CardioCreativity®, is a dance-maker working in Philadelphia & New York. In 2010 she received a Rocky Award for her signature piece Halo performed with a hula hoop and premiered at the Korzo Theater in the Netherlands. Her work has been supported by a Fresh Tracks Residency, a LAB Fellowship through FringeArts, The Independence Foundation, The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the Puffin Foundation, SCUBA National Touring Network for Dance, Omi International Arts Center and the Susan Hess Choreographers’ Project. She has danced for Lucinda Childs, Susan Rethorst, Christopher Williams and now Jane Comfort & Company. Interested in bridging experimentation and populism, she created the online video So You Think You Can’t Understand Contemporary Dance?, a two-minute conversation with her favorite five-year-old.

Nicole Bindler, co-creator of CardioCreativity® and originator of Clitoral Embodiment®, is a body-based performing artist whose dances have been shown throughout the U.S., Canada, Argentina and in Berlin, Tokyo, Beirut, Bethlehem, Mexico City and Quito. Her work has been supported by the Leeway Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (through Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts), Philadelphia Dance Projects, the Community Education Center, FringeArts and The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage. She teaches at University of the Arts and Temple University in Philadelphia.
