The Great Forgotten
By Kacie Devaney
Co-Author Karen Devaney
In 1917, American sister’s Elizabeth and Celia embark on a journey that will change their lives forever. Elizabeth is one of the first registered nurses to offer her services in France when the United States enters World War One. Celia is an artist and never shies away from adventure. Tagging along with Elizabeth, she signs up as a volunteer to aide in the Great War. A three-week voyage by boat to Rouen, France, when the sisters arrive, nothing could have prepared them for the gruesome realities of trench warfare. Together, with fellow nurses, Celia and Elizabeth struggle to save thousands of wounded soldiers passing through base hospital 21. The work is exhausting but through friendship, tears, and laughter, these unsung heroes perform extraordinary acts of courage, even when it means risking their own lives. When the war ends, Elizabeth and Celia return to New York City, only to become a Lost Generation.

Brooke is a burnt out lawyer from New York City. Antoine is a crude trader from Paris. When the two meet at an alluring café by chance, they are compelled to confront buried secrets from their past. Through a kaleidoscope of shifting scenes told through tantalizing movements, conversations, and original folk songs, Brooke and Antoine stumble across an abstract landscape as they confront their idea of change.

What does it feel like to lose the person you love? Shamus and Beth ponder their losses alone at a bar. When Beth strikes up a conversation with Shamus, nothing is what it seems or how she imagined. A walk through the surreal and real; Tell me or Don’t merges contemporary dance and compelling dialogue to paint a bewitching story that is just as much visual splendor as it is visceral.
