Join us at 2pm today, Monday 20th July for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, as we discover the world of Second Life dance spectaculars through the work of the dance companies the Night Theater, Extravadanza and Elysium, and seeing extracts from their wonderful ballet, Imagine!, performed on the stunning sets created on the region of Extravadanza.
We’ll be talking to Aelva, head of the Night Theater, who has brought together many of the best dancers and choreographers in Second Life to create awesome shows for events such as One Billion Rising and Fantasy Faire (with a packed region every day for the beautiful ballet Fantasme). She will be showing us how dances are constructed in Second Life … we will even get a chance to try one for ourselves! We’ll also be talking to Royal Flush, the choreographer, about how the whole dance experience is created.
And we’ll be talking a a dancer new to the Night Theater who is working on her first dance for the company – Amethyst Dovgal, who will explain some of the things that it is necessary to learn to bring a dance from a concept in the head to a performance in Second Life!
We think you’ll find this a fascinating and beautiful show – so do join us, at 2pm today!
Or – if you can’t attend in person – tune in to the web at 2pm SLT on Monday for a showing on SLartist or on Treet – or catch it later in the week on our shows page on the Treet.tv web site at http://treet.tv/shows/designingworlds, on the SLArtist.com channel, the Aview TV Designing Worlds channel – or on the Designing Worlds blog.
You’ll be delighted to learn that not only can you explore the beautiful sets of Imagine! on Extravadanza, but there will be two bonus performances on Friday July 24th at 9pm slt. and Saturday July 25th at 11:59pm SLT.
This is the last show in our current season, but we will be back in September with a show that visits some of the spectacular builds of the Relay for Life of Second Life’s special Relay Weekend.
