First Night Winchester
Incidence
A life-size kinetic sculpture, created by artist Howard Connelly, is manipulated by the dancers.  The sculpture re-configures from vertical to horizontal, to shape the dance as it circles the structure.
Incidence was selected by the Cultural Development Corporation for the Mead Theater Lab Program at Flashpoint, for Velocity DC Dance Festival, for the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston VA and as a temporary public art project for the City of Alexandria.

Niche
Movement, visual art, and theater tell the story of an unremarkable couple, but 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.”  Includes ‘homey’ refreshments, free pizza
