THE ANCIENT RESONANCE
After a spectacular 26-hour performance at the Odyssey Performance Simulator celebrating their 1st anniversary of work here in SL, VB/CO now fully launches their sophomore season with VB17 – DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.
In this work we return to our origins. Human origins. Perhaps virtual ones as well. What sort of world was Plato’s abstract world of the forms. That unattainable realm where truth, perfection and archetypal qualities were to be found?
This return to the point of origin is not only metaphorical, but literal, as the cast of VB/CO will commingle 30 of their bodies to create in human form a structure conceived by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, 25 centuries ago.
Forget 2012, forget Nostradamus, forget the Jupiter Effect, forget tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tidal waves… the forces unleashed when the final element of this ancient power structure is set in place might easily rip this world apart and summon it’s demise.
(and given the band-aids & bubble gum most of the LL servers run on, this is entirely more likely than you might imagine!)
The performance will take place 3,500 meters above the runway at the skydiving SIM Booville. Viewer Environments should be set to midnight. This will not only allow the best viewing of the performance, but when the final element of our structure is set in place, audience members should gaze carefully into the night sky… if, one-by-one, you see the stars of the night sky start to extinguish… pray hard.
THE MODERN PERFORMANCE
In VB17 the cast of VB/CO will commingle 30 of their bodies to create, in human form, a structure conceived by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato, 25 centuries ago. 3-1/2 kilometers above the Booville sim we will join to create a human dodecahedron… and then… WE’LL DROP IT!
After 3 kilometers of free-fall, the cast will parachute (hopefully) to safety!
NOTE TO STAFF: Have insurance waivers from all cast members BEFORE we drop them!!
