ten clones of Gabriella in a smokey warehouse space. We see Gabriella rollerblading, smoking out a window, spray painting a cardboard sign, lying on the ground, wanking off, falling, riding a bicycle, smoking while holding a handmade smoke machine made out of cardboard, lying on the ground drinking a can of coke and Gabriella wearing a nappy and holding a cake. apart from many Gabriella clones, a cake, dripping sits in the front centre of the space, looking quite sad.


Gabriella’s performance making practice is first and foremost concerned with formal experimentation, process-focused making and the destabilisation of the viewer.
