Spectacular Immersion

I am home sick today with a really bad cold of a magnitude I have seldom experienced before. However, between the fever spikes and the chills I feel well enough to blog a while.

On Sunday I attended the premiere (?) of The Change, a metaverse rock opera. You can read my plug for the project in my previous post The Change (url). The show will be playing every Sunday at 1 PM SLT for an as yet undetermined period (or if there is an end date I have not yet stumbled upon it).

If I were you I would definitely try to catch it, because I am going back to see it at least one time more. It is an out-of-worldly, spectacular, musical and dramatic immersive experience. I was completely thrilled and fascinated from start to end by the music and the performances, even if I some trouble following the monologues and dialogues. The latter was most likely because of my mounting fever and being unfocused.

I am now going to show you some pictures I took at the show, but let me tell you they do not do complete justice to the show. You have to be there and be immersed in the music, the movements of the scenery and the changing camera angles to experience and enjoy the immersion.
Even though the performers complained somewhat that the SecondLife servers were a hindrance and botched up their performances.  I can fully aúnderstand how annoying it must be for the performers that something does not work out exactly how they had envisioned it, but as a member of the audience I never noticed any major glitches or problems.

Just go see it for yourselves, be dazzled and get food for thought!

    1. What a pity you did not enjoy it, Ms. Oh. As a Swedish saying goes, "Taste is like buttcheeks, divided" That is such a profound age old wisdom!

  2. A Dutch saying is, "when you stick your tongue deep enough between the divided buttcheeks, the thing you will taste is shit!"
