Danielle Georgiou Dance Group presents Things Missing/Missed
In a unique partnership with Dallas-based dance theatre company the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, the Dallas Public Library will present the local premiere of Things Missing/Missed, a devised, movement theatre work by playwrights Philip Hays, Melissa Flower, and Justin Locklear. Directed by Locklear, the ensemble cast, including Danielle Georgiou and Gloria Benavides, will use physical theater techniques, puppetry, and contemporary dance to bring to life the story of a young couple on the brink of disaster and a hermit, who may or may not, be stealing their property.
Things Missing/Missed is a based on the real story of a hermit, who renounced all interaction with other people and hid the woods outside of North Pond, Maine for 30 years, engendering myths of forest monsters, stealing from pantries and sock drawers. The legend is juxtaposed against T.S. Eliot’s The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, and from this structure, the play explores the sensations of missing, being missed, and being erased.
