SkyDance 6

SkyDance 6, Avant Garden, by far the most complex of all the productions is a story of the four seasons told through mixed reality dance. The SkyDancers create a “garden” in Second Life, while a live dancer playing the role of “Rose Gardener” interacts with the virtual perfomers shown on a large rear production screen in a San Francisco theater venue. The result is a melding of virtual and live action performed to a live audience of over 70 people at each performance date. Avant Garden illustrated the problematic aspects of virtual performace and art being stranded behind a wall of technlogy, accessible only to people fluent enough to download and configure software to see the show. In this hybrid performance members of the live audience had no such barrier while accomodations were still available for the Second Life audience members.
