Niche
An ordinary and unremarkable couple want to go places, meet people, and share their hidden talents.   Movement, visual art, and theater tell the story with a humorous twist. He gains success with ground breaking PowerPoint Presentations.  She has it ‘all under control,’ gives advice, and is featured in a magazine.  There are lots of things, more than they know what to do with.  Something has to give when you have bigger fish to fry. Recycled materials, contributed by UpCycle (an Alexandria-based creative reuse center) are transformed by an overhead projector and a brief shadow puppet sequence. Storyboard caricatures are drawn in real time by artist Susan Miranda. Named “Best of Capital Fringe 2015

Mouse in House
Adapted from the book by Elizabeth Spires, “Mouse in House” reveals an unlikely friendship between a mouse and reclusive 19th-century poet Emily Dickinson. The mouse’s life changes forever when a gust of wind blows one of Emily’s poems her way. Moved by Emily’s evocative words that capture her own feelings, the mouse becomes determined to be a poet herself.
