Niche finds an ordinary and unremarkable couple on their honest search for a place called ‘home.’  Boy meets girl and one thing follows the next.  An unsettling group of passersby, vintage technology, innovative movement and text bring the situation into focus. Recycled materials are contributed by UpCycle, an Alexandria-based creative reuse center.  Handmade 2-D cut-outs and transparencies move the story forward via an ‘old school’ overhead projector and slide projector. Dance and theatre combines with live music for banjo and guitar by Mark Sylvester.

Where: Atlas Performing Arts Center – 1330 H Street NE, Washington D.C.
