The irreverent and insightful work of New York-based Tere O'Connor continues to break new ground in theatrical invention. The World Is a Missing Girl highlights a mixture of punctuated spoken text and deftly articulated movement that combines elements of pop culture with O'Connor's original brand of choreography. The work is both achingly funny and tragic, dramatizing the issue of missing children and drawing a metaphorical parallel between the mistreatment of children and the environment. The evening also includes the world premiere of a new movement-theater work for his six-member company of virtuoso, idiosyncratic actor-dancers. As described by Mikhail Baryshnikov, O'Connor's works are "deeply personal, quirky, and utterly amusing, but beneath the humor lies tenderness and truth."
