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 theatre 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.

“We believe in storytelling through movement and the power of dance to communicate ideas that are normally hidden,” said DGDG founder Danielle Georgiou. “Each word or phrase embodies a gesture and movement that can fundamentally alter our perceptions and emotions, and there is something beautifully haunting in exploring that.”

The play was first performed in Houston in 2015, with the intent to share and develop works between Houston and Dallas. Philip, Melissa, and Justin were curious how a devised work could grow and breathe in different spaces, under different hands, and in different cities. Upon receiving their residency, Danielle and Justin saw this as a perfect opportunity to bring this engrossing work to Dallas. And most appropriately, a work exploring erasure, redaction, and stolen property will take place in the one location with the most collected truth and history: the library!
