THE DICKENS PROJECT: A Contemporary "Fezziwig's Ball"

"In came a fiddler with a music-book, and went up to the lofty desk, and made an orchestra of it, and tuned like fifty stomach-aches. In came Mrs. Fezziwig, one vast substantial smile. In came the three Miss Fezziwigs, beaming and lovable. In came the six young followers whose hearts they broke . . . In they all came, one after another; some shyly, some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly, some pushing, some pulling; in they all came, any how and every how!"  (from Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol")

Fezziwig's Ball is coming to Second Life!  But don't worry, you do not need to dust off your Victorian dance steps.  Dress in Dickensian finery, if you desire it, but be prepared to rock out with two contemporary musicians in from opposite sides of the Atlantic "pond" in Dickens Project Plaza Saturday, December 19th beginning at Noon SLT

StoryFest Events Announces Sunset with Fezziwig’s Ball- December 21, 2014 11am-4pm SLT



Imagination Island, Second Life – StoryFest Events, which began with a single story-based weekend in March 2010, will be closing the cover on event production with one final live literature event: Fezziwig’s Ball. Storytellers will gather on Sunday, December 21st beginning at 11am SLT to present the entire text of Charles Dickens’ classic holiday ghost story, A Christmas Carol, followed by a dance party with tips benefiting the Community Virtual Library.  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Imagination%20Island/189/154/22

“It has been a fascinating ride and we have had many tremendously successful events.” explained Caledonia Skytower, StoryFest Events Director, “Not everything lasts forever, especially in the virtual world, or can continue in the same form.  We’ve gotten to the point where it has been clear we needed to evaluate where we were going, and what we needed to become.  It’s all good news, actually.  These sorts of celebration events will continue. It is simply that StoryFest Events as a production entity is no longer necessary.”

StoryFest Events has produced StoryFest, Bard on the Beach, and BOOFest for the last four years, and in 2012 added The Dickens Project. Fezziwig’s Ball is a condensation of the previous Dickens events, featuring many of the voice performers that have been a popular part of StoryFests over the years: Dubhna Rhiadra, Corwyn Allen, Kayden Oconnell, Aoife Lorefield, Shandon Loring, Freda Frostbite and Bhelanna Blaze as well as Skytower herself. As a sign that this is a transition and not a finale, John Morland will be introduced as a new voice among the cast of readers.  “I am really excited about John joining us for this.  He has a nice style and tambour that is a good compliment to the other folks we have,” Ms. Skytower added.

A Christmas Carol will begin at 11am with “Stave One: Marley’s Ghost” presented by Loring and Skytower, and will proceed with a new section of the text each hour, as performers pass the baton from one reader to the next, as Dickens’ ghostly story of Christmas and the redemption of a soul unfolds. Following the conclusion of the story, Dubhna Rhiadra will be spinning some wonderfully appropriate holiday music as storytellers and story lovers dance in celebration of four years of great, storied events.

All story presentations will be live in voice.  All the performers are volunteers and the sessions are free to all Second Life residents. 

StoryFest Events thanks The Community Virtual Library for providing the venue for the event, and for their support of the debut of The Dickens Project in 2012. Many thanks also everyone who has been so incredibly supportive of StoryFest Events over the past four years, including: Crap Mariner, Inara Pey, Branwen Arts, Lizzo Dreamscape, Equinox Pinion & Denis Lagan, and Thinkerer Melville PLUS all the great storytellers, readers and performers who have been a part of Storyfest, Bard On the Beach, BOOFest, and The Dickens Project-- It's been a fabulous time!
