To be on the edge
Lay down on the floor
The weight of gravity
As you sink deeply into the floor
Head is a marble filled with water
Lips dry and you lick them
The pull of the tide
You dream awake
In a cave
NICK+JAMES have been mirroring and reflecting one another in dance since 2008. They’ve performed together on streets and stages all over L.A., and at Pieter. They design their dances, costumes, and sets.
Lake (2012) was a union of minds and hearts, and Tender Heart (2013) was the dissolution of two expressive bodies. Tara Jane O’Neil made music for both dances, and an earlier iteration was with Odeya Nini and Archie Carey. We got to perform Lake in San Francisco with Archie by the curation of our friend, Dr. Doran George.
Brink (2019) is the third dance by NICK+JAMES.
Thank you to Brian Getnick and Dorothy Dubrule.
For Doran. “This is L.A-A-A-A. Here I love you.”
