Elysium Cabaret – January 3rd 2019 Show

Welcome to the Year of Perfect Vision, 2020! WOW what exciting adventures await us this year! And it started at The Empire Room on Copperhead Road when Elysium Cabaret treated it’s cherished audience to a brilliant array of imaginative dance. Beautifully appointed sets, detailed costumes, and eloquent choreography graced every act in this, our first show of the New Year. With Paul and Jilley warmly greeting arriving guests, DJ Gunner getting everyone bouncing in their seats with his great tunes, and Babypea holed up behind the bar sampling all the Top Shelf, it was an emotional and provocative First Show of 2020.

 **************HAPPY NEW YEAR!**************
And Welcome to the FIRST WEEKEND of 2020!

Today also happened to be the 11th Rez Day for Elysium Co-Owner Paul Woodrunner. We all wish Paul a HAPPY REZ DAY and got to have some fun time with ‘birthday’ spankings after the show. He was a very good sport about it, though he refused to allow me to take off his pants and spank his bare bottom.

Let’s take a look at some pictures from the show!

Elysium Cabaret’s Holiday Show of December 20th 2019

Happy Holidays, from Elysium Cabaret! Tonight was our Holiday Magic show, danced with love. For me, it is a sweet Christmas, as I cut out a lot of the avarice from years past and am simply enjoying the feeling of the season. The lights, trees and decorations, feasts and cheer, family and friends, and fulfilling moments killing things and blowing shit up in Fallout 76. The best Christmas ever! Stay safe and be good to one another as we celebrate hope, peace, joy and love. Welcome to the weekend! Let’s take a look at the show, from The Empire Room at Copperhead Road with your hosts Paul and Jilley, your DJ Gunner, and our beloved Dance Manager Wiz, plus some of the finest, most dedicated choreographers and dancers in Second Life. Not to mention, the BEST audience! Lots of love to you all!!

Elysium Cabaret’s December 13th 2019 Show

It was Friday the 13th but turned out to be a night of very good luck because the stellar talent of Elysium Cabaret presented another mesmerising show, featuring some of the greatest talent on the grid! Our cherished audience of family, friends, and people who we look forward to becoming friends, gathered in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road, to be greeted by Paul and Jilley as well as DJ Gunner’s infectious tunes. We were missing Wiz tonight, who was tending RL, and we send him love and look forward to his return. In lieu of his presence, Pea took over, happily patrolling the backstage with the infamous feather duster AKA feather-tipped whip, making sure all performers were on their marks. Following are some pictures of what our lucky audiences got to see and be part of. What a lucky night! Welcome to the weekend!

Elysium Celebrates Seven Years – December 6 2019 Show

This was a very special Friday, even more than most Fridays because this celebrated SEVEN YEARS of Elysium Cabaret! It was our seventh anniversary show, actually the first show in our eighth year. And what a great show it was, every act was fabulous. Everyone brought their “A” game so to speak. I remember long ago, saying, “Well, we’ll give it three months and then see how things are, if they are not going well, we will just close down the troupe.” Seven years later, we are stronger than ever, with thanks to a whole lot of dedicated, talented people. A lot of dancers have found their feet on the Elysium stage. THANK YOU to everyone who has participated with Elysium over the years… whether you’ve been on the stage, behind the scenes or in the audience! Our choreographers, dancers, management, staff, fans, friends, family, audience… each of you has contributed to Elysium and we thank you and appreciate you!

What a heap of fun with some of the most talented and most dedicated performers on the grid. We all flocked to The Empire Room at Copperhead Road sim to share our love of music and dance with one another. It was a great night, in spite of SL giving us a bit of a hard time.

Elysium Cabaret’s November 22nd 2019 Show

If it’s Friday, it’s Elysium Cabaret in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road. And it was FRIDAY! With Paul and Jilley as our hosts, DJ Gunner playing the tunes, and The Wiz wrangling backstage and audience details, not to mention the free shots and hors d’oeuvres, what more could you want for a fabulous evening of entertainment! What an amazing night of dance it was, with every choreographer going the extra mile except me! Amazing sets, dynamic choreography, tight mover work, particle magic, and very cool special effects… except for my set. If you saw this show, you saw some of the finest dancing in Second Life, and you also saw my set. *snorts* But let’s not make it all about me! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made it happen, whether your contribution was on the stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience. Let’s look at some pics from the show!

What a great show we had tonight! Good friends, great energy, and some of the finest dancing on the grid. Jilley has returned from her adventures on the high seas. Looks like they didn’t make her walk the plank. She and Paul greeted arriving guests who flocked to THE place to be a on Friday night in Second Life, THE EMPIRE ROOM on Copperhead Road. We had great music from DJ Gunner, The Wiz keeping things orderly backstage, and me trying to come to and look productive. Oh wow, I jumped tense with that sentence. That is grammatically incorrect!

Elysium Cabaret’s Show of November 8th 2019

It was a rough night, or at least it started that way. Jilley is out in the ocean, practising her pirating skills… oh I hope she brings me back a jar of dirt! Paul has moved uptown into a fancy new penthouse in RL, and was having internet issues with his new provider, and I was having all sorts of computer/viewer/rez issues. But suddenly Paul appeared, my viewer came good, my inventory loaded, Britt and Morganna were graciously welcoming arriving guests, DJ Gunner was warming up the audience with some rockin’ tunes, and Wiz was attending his Managerial responsibilities. I was pleased to learn he is taking his new position as Elysium’s Official Panty Checker seriously:

[17:52] Wiz Nirvana: Warning – Panties have not rezzed
[17:52] BabypeaVonPhoenix Bikergrrl: LOL thank you Wiz, I thought I felt some warm breath *down there*

I think what made everything suddenly come good was Britt’s butt cleavage. As soon as I noticed it, everything came good. After such a rocky and rollin’ pre-show, the show itself ran very smoothly, with some absolutely brilliant acts! Take a look at some pics. If you missed it, you missed out. And WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!!
==========================================
Wiz
Elastic Heart – Sia
Wiz made me cry again with this one. Very powerful movement. This is pure Skan. “Skan enters the body with the spirit and sets new life in motion.”

Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I recently heard Elastic Heart on The Voice and immediately remembered the video that came out just after Sia released it with Shia LaBeouf & Maddie Ziegler (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWZGAExj-es) dancing around in a large cage while wearing “flesh” colored outfits and thought I might be able to put an interesting spin on it. Adding the Sia wig sorta embodied both dancers. I added the Sia Wig treatment to the stage as well.

You know I lean toward covers whenever I can; they add extra dimensions and textures that maybe the original didn’t reach. I contemplated a number of covers, including Christina Grimmie’s version, but her story is sad on it’s own and thought it might affect the song’s story. I listened to the original again and that was all it took to come up with the final answer. I hope everyone enjoyed it.

==========================================
Alexis
With Prestor (Daddy Meriman), Jorgio, 2 more men and 2 gals
Say it Right – Nelly Furtado
Alexis and some sexy ladies, one in particular I know quite well, did some classy but sassy dancin’ for some very distinguished gentlemen!

Dear dances this so naturally, you can tell she really does have royal blood!  Let us cosset her.

==========================================
Kyser
With BabyPea, Britt, Dear, Kelly, Morgana, Haille, Web, Taema
On Broadway by George Benson
WOW Kyser goes over the top with this one… what a set, fantastic choreo, and those JEANS fit him like the skin on a grape!


==========================================
Mikiko
Disturbed – The Sound Of Silence
Doesn’t Mikiko look magnificent?!?!


==========================================
Babypea
Take Me Now by Rick
Someone I once knew wrote/composed/recorded this song in his basement. He played all the instruments and sang. I have always thought it was exquisitely beautiful.

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
A friend of mine from long ago wrote/composed/recorded this song in his basement. He played all the instruments on it and sang it. It is really beautiful, and I have always wanted to dance to one of his original songs… I also wanted people to hear it, because he is so talented. People really love his music.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
I had to amp it a bit so that the SAM player didn’t drop out, it was a bit quiet in places. And me laying down and becoming part of the garden took some fiddling so that things matched up properly.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Very sentimental and personal. An expression of gratitude, hope and acceptance.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
The song is by some guy named Rick! Let us pray for a last name!
