Mirandy and Brother Wind was a part of the Family Series at Synchronicity Theater. The show is based upon a children's book of the same title by Patricia McKissack. The color palette and style of the original book were studied extensively and drawn from. A big player in the book is a quilt, which Mirandy uses to try and capture Brother Wind. The floor was designed to look like both a quilt and also grass, wildflowers, and a dirt path. The house was a rotating piece that turned to reveal Mirandy's room. Painted legs were made of muslin, which were manipulated with lights to reveal shadows at times.
