IBM 10 (14, 179, 24)
A new original ballet
Before there was Second Life, there were avatars...
This is a ballet based on the real story of the "Living Goddess", or Kumari Devi, who is worshipped in Nepal. Chosen as a child, she becomes a living goddess. What does this mean? Through ritual and tradition, she provides hope, peace, and serenity to her troubled people. What does it mean to all of our living gods and goddesses, our heroes and icons, our prophets and stars across the lands? All who flower, are idolized, and grow old or die replaced by a new one in a forever progression. What does it mean to be a living goddess? Join us as we honor Kumari, journey to the mystical mountains to see the battle of the gods, and participate in the joyous progression of the new living goddess. Choreography by Inarra Saarinen, music by Solary Clary.

["Living Goddess"] very much captures the emotion, which was unexpected and enjoyable; I am stunned in fact. I was unsure of how such a thing would work in SL. Well I had heard of ballets going on here; however admittedly had felt they would lack the authenticity. It's just such a lovely thing to enjoy with friends and wonderful to be able to experience in the comfort of your own home. You are doing an amazing job; its really beautiful and it really has the feeling of attending soemthing special. I'm sure it means so much to those who are lucky enough to find you.
Thank you Inarra Saarinen, Artistic Director of Ballet Pixelle for this post!
