FringeArts Map

Performances at 5, 6 & 8pm

Get a glimpse inside a makeshift shop containing Dora’s secret collection – the dreams and nightmares donated by past customers. Writer and performer Morgan McKenzie Kauffman merges simple magic, character, science and folk lore to tell the story of Dora and the patrons who make up this mysterious market. This interactive show changes every performance as Dora’s collection grows with each new audience. Shop the store yourself or donate your own dream in this intimate experience about our relationship to the uncontrollable stories that come through us every night. For the antique addicts, mystically moved, even the dubious doubtful, Dora’s Gently Used Dream Store offers a sense of awe and enigma for the unconscious phenomenon shared by us all.


Morgan McKenzie Kauffman is a theatre-maker, performer and movement practitioner working in the Philadelphia area. She aims to give her own and others’ “bodies of work” BODY, working across the disciplines of performance and somatics. Recently, she toured Romeo and Juliet with The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival and premiered her original devised solo show Dora’s Gently Used Dreams Store at the 2023 Philly Fringe to a sold out run. A graduate of The Feldenkrais Institute of New York and Frantic Assembly’s International Summer Theatre Program, Morgan has enjoyed teaching movement and devising for performers and community members at Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble, and Farm Arts Collective. She’s so excited to be bringing Dora back for Miniball!
