Eight fashion designers and visual artists were challenged to create wearable art pieces based on the theme "SubTerra."  Playwrights were then paired with each of the pieces, using them as inspiration for four original one-act plays.  The wearable art were presented in a one-night-only dance based fashion show.  The plays were presented in the weeks to follow, as part of a two week mini-festival.
