Last weekend in first life I had the opportunity to catch an amazing show in Philadelphia, "La Verita", a Salvador Dali-inspired cirque production. From the Kimmel Center's website, "Inspired by the unbridled imagination of artistic genius, Salvador Dalí, La Verità features a cast of virtuosic performers — juxtaposing circus, dance, music, and vaudeville." If this comes to your town, GO SEE IT. It is by far one of the strangest, loveliest, funniest, and most jaw-dropping displays of talent I've seen in years.
"That's great, Kinn," I can hear you thinking, "but what does that have to do with SL Mainland??" Well, it reminded me of a cool little Mainland parcel I'd visited once, so I went to investigate if it still existed. And...it does!
Then, if you'd like some more immersive art experiences, let's head down to the very southern tip of the Sansara snowlands to Art Box in the sim Klaw. Created by Frankie Rockett and Violet Sweetwater, Art Box is a three-level building containing dozens of famous artworks, recreated with backdrops and poseballs so that you can put yourself into the art. In the photo below, I try out some Warhol-inspired pop art, and in the final photo, I place myself in Rene Magritte's "Son of Man".
