COVID-19 in 2020 has accelerated the comprehensive "cloud-based" of People's Daily life: e-commerce shopping, express logistics, takeout catering, online classes and so on have become normal life, which not only satisfies people's immediate enjoyment, but also affects our perception of time and space and way of life. The distance between social relations and emotional intimacy has nothing to do with the space distance. People's life is changing from the physical and biological mode to the virtual electronic mode, and the real "nearby" is undergoing tremendous changes.
Wang Ziyue openly recruited six residents of different ages and occupations living in various administrative districts of Chengdu who have no performing experience. Based on the discussion of "nearby", the theater performance work " Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always" and the multi-frequency video installation work of the same name were generated, in order to stimulate the audience to live in "questioning" and actively face the real contradictions. Liberate yourself from the measurement of results and search for answers deep within.
