Niche finds Jane Franklin Dance in a landscape of recycled materials from UpCycle, an Alexandria-based creative reuse center. A niche is a best fit, a sheltered space, a situation for success or an environment that suits a particular being. Objects of identity are transformed through the use of the out-dated technology of an overhead projector and transparencies.  Movement combined with light and shadow transforms to tell a story framing an ordinary couple as a dynamic unit searching for a place called ‘home.’  Live music for banjo and guitar is by Mark Sylvester with additional music by Eclipse Chamber Orchestra.
Where: ATLAS Performing Arts Center – 1330 H Street NE, Washington D.C.
