Sundays at 5:00pm and Wednesdays at 5:00pm thought December
in Ballet Pixelle’s new Grand Theatre
Ballet Pixelle performs its version of the Nutcracker (“The Nut”) for the fourteenth year this holiday season. “The Nut” is Ballet Pixelle’s essence of The Nutcracker so you can see just the wonderful dances.
In Ballet Pixelle’s constant quest to blend and explore physical and virtual dance, several surprises await you!
Does Clara become the Princess to her Nutcracker as he becomes the Prince of her dreams? We see mysterious dances in the white castle. Arabian dancers fly in on magic carpets. A Russian cossack stamps out a dance. Matryoshka dolls roll and play. Chinese empresses and emperors move on delicate feet and Spanish señoras and señoritas prance flamboyantly. And even snowflakes dance!
Join us for an evening of classic, and yet new, holiday delights.
Is the first performing ballet company in the virtual global community Second Life®. Says the Company’s founder, Inarra Saarinen,
“As artistic director of the Company since its inception, I have enormous pride in Ballet Pixelle. Our goal is to investigate and explore the interaction and intersection of physical and virtual dance and blended realities. We perform in the virtual reality of Second Life as well as in the physical reality of First Life (Australia, England, Germany, Japan, USA for example). We are excited to celebrate the future of dance.
We are dancing into the digital future!”
Members of Ballet Pixelle come together from all over the world, including Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America. Animations are created by Inarra Saarinen and put into dance phrases. There are no artificial synchronizing devices and the dancers truly perform dancing with each other and the music. Each performance is truly live and unique, and takes advantage of the characteristics of Second Life to extend the art of the ballet in new directions.
