  1. I made an origami crane! Well, Kimiko helped. Helped a lot.

    About as sweet a show as can be found at the Fringe, this visual dessert of Japanese circus performance, is part history lesson, part self-discovery tale and all the feels. Dance, puppetry, juggling, sword swallowing and a kimono lesson.

    Well balanced and a visual feast, this will appease all ages, especially those single digiters (very vocal on this night).
    And most will go home with a crane. No wonder it is selling out.
