See Me, Feel Me: Costumes that dance…

See Me, Feel Me.  A dance performance, generally RL, that touched me in some way, but I won’t go into detail how.  That’s for you to feel, to see, to listen for yourself.  I watch dance performances in SL, and in RL through videos.  I sink deep into them, how do I feel, how do I react to it, can I feel the movement, does it inspire me, or do I dislike it.  In turn, I believe it expands my own mind and creativity.

Seems overwhelming when your mindset is on SL dance, doesn’t it?  Wait…watch.

I will be the first to admit that elements of this aren’t really possible in SL.  We can’t lift our skirts to create the movement as they do…but our costumes CAN have movement.  Beautiful movement.  This movement can help convey the emotion of the dance and tell a story.  What CAN we do in this world of our creativity?  Notice the interactions of the spotlight dancers with the “tornado” of fabric that seems to flow like water.  Notice the soloist spin at 1:55.

Do the dancers convey the story, the emotion, of the music?  What do you feel?  What do you see?  That is for you to decide in this world of art.
