For more than a decade, Philadelphia audiences have enjoyed Gabrielle Revlock’s smart dance frolics. Through props, witticisms, and playful moves, she has created a niche for her work as a form of dancey physical theater. In the hour-long Show No Show, which opened Thursday night at FringeArts, she partners with Russian contemporary dancer Aleksandr “Sasha” Frolov.

Russia, long the stronghold of ballet, came even later to contemporary dance than Eastern Europe. Observing Frolov’s easy expressivity in his frolic with Revlock combined with his kinetically formalized body was not so much a revelation as a pleasure.
