The 7th Capital Fringe Festival, brought over dozens of independent artists in Washington DC (July 12 – 29, 2012), was a celebration of the links between admirers of performing arts and culture.

This mini-documentary is about Yanomi, the Japanese performer of “A Day in the Life of Miss Hiccup” in the Capital Fringe Festival.

Her performance was a solo clown show with music featuring the artist in a colorful costume. The cheerful “Miss Hiccup” show became hugely popular during the festival and finally she received one of the main awards.

A few months after the earthquake, tsunami, and subsequent nuclear disaster in Japan in 2011, Yanomi as Miss Hiccup toured the tsunami-affected areas to perform – in her word – “in a land with no color.”

“In those days people were very sad, confused and scared for months, but when I went to the area they became really happy to see my show,” Yanomi said. “Maybe comedy can do some little tiny thing to make the world a better place.”
