About the show

A multidisciplinary devised ensemble theater piece that seeks to investigating the phrase “and then I never saw them again.”  Part of the 2018 Dream Up Festival. More…

Using Craigslist missed connections ads and verbatim stories as source material, this piece blends movement, text, music, and technology to create a dream land of opportunities lost. It is a search for something that disappeared while your back was turned. Dreamy, ethereal, and haunting, it is performed to a mix of contemporary music and soundscapes.
