Within the tableaux of a 1960’s living room— records spin and ornate rugs dress the stage—Nick Duran’s every time you are near is a play between melodrama and formalism. Heightened by risk and emotion, the dancing dissolves its own formal structures to reveal a psyche laid bare, swaying from absence to desire.
The work draws upon a year-long process of experimental pedagogical/performance exchanges made at Pieter, BASE Sessions, and homeLA with both visual and performance-based artists. Additionally the work was developed through a residency provided by Show Box LA.
For his showing at Pieter, Duran will perform with Brian Getnick.
