ZEROG SkyDancers perform tonight! (Aug. 27th and 30th)

The ZEROG SkyDancers will be performing 'Avant Garden' at LEA.

Produced and presented by LEA alum Dancoyote Antonelli, with technical direction by LEA alum Sasun Steinbeck.

There are two dates for this show: August 27th (tonight!) at 6:45 PM SLT, and August 30th at 12:45 PM SLT.

Contact Dancoyote Antonelli in-world for show details and RSVP. Sim resources are finite, so seating is limited.

From the press release:

August 20 marked the first ever mixed reality ZEROG SkyDance opening at Little Boxed Theater in San Francsico.
The virtual SkyDance set was projected on a 14’ x 8’ rear projection screen inside a fully darkened theater space with an incredible sound system playing the original musical score composed for Avant Garden by Swedish composer Juivers Stockholm. Dancing in a "follow spot” in front of the projection screen was Kathleen Moore (of Dance Generators) playing the character “Rose Gardener” the caretaker of the Avant Garden. Before the show, artist and creator DC Spensley (DanCoyote in SL) spoke briefly about the production giving historical context to the 8 years of SkyDance productions and a primer on virtual worlds as context for the event. Most people in the audience were not initiated into virtual worlds and found it very helpful to understand what was going on. The show was very well attended with about 60 people crowded into a theater space designed for 50. 

The coming  “in world” Avant Garden shows will featuer all the same virtual production with the artist DC Spensley storytelling where the live dancer would be performing in the mixed reality version. Show #1 on August 27 at 6:45 PM Second Life Time is intended for friends, family and fans of the first, and longest running virtual worlds production in history: The ZEROG SkyDance. Show #2 August 30 at 12:45 PM Second Life Time is scheduled for to accomodate the European time zones.

These will be the only two shows possible since DanCoyote’s stay at LEA SOVA (School of Virtual Art) comes to a close on September 1st. The SkyDance “Avant Garden” is presently looking for another sim and discussions are under way to produce another mixed reality showing in San Francisco in late September or early October.  Please IM DanCoyote Antonelli in SL or send email to to be added to the list for this one of a kind event in San Francisco.
