The Rose Theatre (& other thoughts) in Second Life

The Rose Theatre (general)

I have a backlog of art and other wonders to share with you (including bugs) but I thought I’d show you a venue I happened upon the other day.

The Rose Theatre↑ is a very large complex devoted to “A celebration of the arts. The Rose brings together many art forms all under one roof.”  As a structure it’s a great place to explore and, unlike fashion backward me, you might want to dress formally just so you feel at home.

This incredibly opulent and extravagant build houses a ballroom and opera house as well as a gallery and more.  I had no difficulty imagining a host of glittering attendees making small talk at a large event within these walls.

The gallery curator and artist-in-residence is Kylie Sabra↑ and you’ll find a steampunk themed exhibit there now.  Including this telescope which follows you around – it’s not too disturbing until it blinks.

I want to apologize to all the artists and curators who have openings this week – I can’t physically get to all of them at once or write a blog post describing their wonders and publish multiples at the same time.  But, I will visit as many as possible and offer what I’ve seen in these pages.

Be a little patient with me.  I have a list of everything I know about and want to attend – and will save time for those I haven’t discovered yet.  :)

I should also make it clear, in case it isn’t, that I visit these installations and builds because of the joy the artists and creators bring me.  This has been increasingly important of late – I went more than 4 years inworld without drama.  A few months ago that changed and it’s been insane.  Luckily exploring keeps me in touch with those things I love about the grid and keeps me from going avaticidal. :p

Visiting The Rose Theatre↑  was a chance to visit another age and sensibility.  It’s lush and full of images that I enjoyed capturing and one day I’ll force myself to wear something really elegant and attend a truly high brow performance.  I’m hoping there will be champagne.
