The latest episode of Designing Worlds – as we discover the world of Second Life dance spectaculars – is now on the web.
We visit the beautiful region of Extravadanza, currently set out for the wonderful ballet, Imagine!, performed by a ombination of the dance companies the Night Theater, Extravadanza and Elysium and we see extracts from Imagine! too.
We talk 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)about how dances are constructed in Second Life … we will even get a chance to try one for ourselves!
We also talk to Royal Flush, the choreographer, about how the whole dance experience is created, and to Amethyst Dovgal, a dancer new to the Night Theater who is working on her first dance for the company and who explains 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!
