In the middle of the night, a grid of light slowly pans across the darkened facade of Union Station. It's 3 a.m. on Thursday, and a team from Quixotic Fusion is methodically lining up 12 digital projectors to create 3-D images using the station as a movie screen. It's part of the promised spectacle -- which also includes a concert, Chiefs pep rally, and fireworks display -- marking the 100th anniversary of Union Station on Friday night.

Two children experience many facets of a dream in the mystical tale of Tormenta Quixotica; on the dark and curious side of this dream, they encounter a group of contortionists.

Tormenta Quixotica, the first full-length production by Quixotic School of Performing Art's student company, is one of the more than 350 performances in this year's KC Fringe Festival, which kicks off on July 18.
