The Dance Apocalypse, originally described as "La Jetée meets Québécois line dancing," explores the nature of creative collaboration, shedding light on tensions and delights in relation to art-making. Revisit the Center-funded performance piece in Brooklyn with The Dance Apocalypse/Solos. Creators Gabrielle Revlock and Nicole Bindler describe the piece as " a radical challenge to the paltry circumstances in which artists seek funding and a heart wrenching end-of-the-world love story with pizazz."
A combination of circumstances (travel, funding, curiosity) caused Revlock and Bindler to pull the piece apart, divvying up the material into two solos. Revlock performs The Dance Apocalypse/Fundraiser and Bindler performs The Dance Apocalypse/Class. For the first time, the solos will be shown together, bringing focus to Revlock and Bindler as individuals and providing personal and sometimes contradictory perspectives on their tumultuous relationship.
