This Weekend in Second Life Dance

Guerilla Burlesque - Cirque de Nuit - March 28 2018

Hi there. R. Crap Mariner, not just anybody’s Dance Corresponent… your Dance Correspondent. (Marvel insists on my not saying “friendly, neighbourhood” because some kid who throws globs of sticky gunk at criminals has it trademarked.)

Idle Rogue’s Cirque de Nuit opens this weekend. I hope you’ve got your seats booked.

I’ll be posting dance performance schedules, similar to Inara’s posts about Seanchai Library readings. We’ll start with the weekend events for now.

Let’s get started, here’s the events that I had on the calendar as of press time…


(All times SLT)

Elysium Cabaret - March 23 2018

7:00PM Idle Rogue’s Cirque De Nuit

Directed by Blaze DeVivre, with the assistance of Sho Kyong, and produced by chryblnd Scribe, this year’s production will feature new acts, new dancers, new art installations and perhaps a little something we haven’t done before.

Billed as “a steampunk circus in black and white”, Le Cirque de Nuit pays loose homage to The Night Circus, a novel by Erin Morgenstern, which tells the tale of an enchanted circus travelling the globe during the Victorian era. Our production features dance acts with themes of circus, illusion and steampunk, and the strictly black-and-white acts are interspersed by colourful art installations from Second Life artists and musicians.

Oh, and there’s a blog post.

6:00PM Whymsee Noir

For the Let’s Dance show, we trade in our sets for MORE dancing and LESS wait time between songs! There will be lots of wiggling, dancing, physics, and a little dazzle thrown in for good measure! Dance along with us or have a seat in our comfy chairs, we like it when you watch! No naked avatars, just dancing. Come to the show and see what all the fuss is about!

Nope. Nothing at all. Go up to your skybox and clean your inventory… okay, lamest April Fools joke ever.

5:00PM – Winds Of The Sahara

Each Sunday we have a shiny, new show at Winds of the Sahara Theatre. Our dances range from burlesque to performance art and you are sure to be amazed at all of the wonder that sets, costumes and music can create. We’ll put sparkles in your eyes and leave sequins on your shirt collars.

Okay, fine. You don’t love me enough to read the blog post. I get it. I’m okay with it. I’ll find some way to survive.

7:00PM The Art Factory

The Art Factory presents: The Greatest Showman! A show about Phineas T Barnum’s start with the circus we know today! This show will leave you inspired to be yourself! We promise to leave you stunned with razzle dazzle and songs that will make you dance in your seat! The show starts at 7pm slt but you may want to come a little early for a seat.

(Short shameful confession: At first, I thought it said “The Greatest Snowman.” I need new glasses.)

The Art Factory - March 21 2018


I assume there will be a few more shows this week… folks are just taking their time getting the notices in, finishing up their routines… that sort of thing. I’d prefer to error on the side of caution and just post the ones confirmed at press time.

Check with the Dance Queens event calendar for updates and additions to the weekend’s schedule, as well as the many events that happen during the week. And then, next weekend… something extra-special is happening: The Festival of Saint Put Up Or Shut Up!

So, folks, is this useful? Let me know. Drop me an IM when you get to a show and that you enjoyed it.

One thought on “This Weekend in Second Life Dance

  1. It looks like Sunday has changed…
    CLUB IMAGE is at 7:00AM SLT at their usual location.
    And the other Sunday shows are NOT on the schedule, so I guess you have the afternoon free… to make your own dance routines!
