BALLET PIXELLE PRESENTS "THE NUT" 14th Anniversary Special Matinees December 20 and 27th




Ballet Pixelle® will present its special traditional "The Nut" ballet throughout December.  This is the 14TH YEAR anniversary for Ballet Pixelle to present "The Nut", which premiered in 2007!   It is presented in the gobal virtual reality of Second Life (secondlife.com).  No social distancing required!


Ballet Pixelle performs its version of the Nutcracker, using Artistic Director Inarra Saarinen's own animations and choreography, and utilizing some of the particular attributes of virual reality.  "The Nut" is Ballet Pixelle's essence of The Nutcracker so you can see just the wonderful, and our truly original, dances.


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.  Russian dolls roll and play.  Chinese empresses and emperors move on delicate feet, and Spanish senoritas and senoras throw themselves flamboyantly.  A field of flowers waltz together.  And even snowflakes dance!


Performances are Wednesdays at 5:00 pm and Sundays at 5:00 pm SLT throughout December in Ballet Pixelle's new Grand Theatre.  Special matinees are at 1:00 pm on Sundays, December 20 and 27.  Join us for a truly different Nutcracker -- beyond Zoom!


Join us for an evening of classic, and yet new, holiday delights and join our after-party to dance on the luxurious set!

*********************************************



Ballet Pixelle® 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.
