"Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg's two-act solo brings theatre and dance together in an incandescently hilarious performance."
~ Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight

Nick & Juanita- Livin' in my dreams dances with the effects of love on Juanita, a woman
who is trying to reconcile her fugitive brain and her adorably naïve heart, and Nick, a man seemingly lacking in both. Nick is a smooth, slimy talk show host whose use of a microphone brings new meaning to the words phallic symbol. His absurd, grandiose gestures in true Friedenberg style capture a physical compensation for his lacking emotions. On the other hand, Juanita wears her heart on her sleeve by continuously abandoning her brain for the next guy who will show her affection. A classic comic tragedy, we don't know whether we should laugh or cry at these two hapless personalities.

Effortlessly leaping from one character to the next, Nick & Juanita demonstrates what Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg does best: social satire strongly rooted in character-driven work. Like the bulk of this creative powerhouse's work, Friedenberg creates rich, multilayered personalities that audiences can identify with. A highly comic piece, Nick & Juanita will leave audiences grinning from ear to ear, and perhaps a little reminiscent for their own forays in the search for love, affection and understanding.

Nick & Juanita - Livin' in My Dreams is a co-production of The CanDance Network Creation Fund, Dance Victoria, Dancing on the Edge, Live Arts Productions, Now Showing Live Arts, Peterborough New Dance, and supported by the Dance Section of the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, City of Vancouver, the BC Gaming Commission, and The Banff Centre.
