On March 8 and 9, a collaborative of Second Life residents will be presenting an original production called "In the Pink," a series of one-acts intended to fight gender violence. The inspiration is Eve Ensler’s play "The Vagina Monologues" and co-incides with a series of real worlds events called "V-Day" to draw attention to the issue of violence against women. The premiere is this Saturday, March 8 at 1:30PM PST at Ivy Falls (click here to teleport.) The show repeats at 5:30PM that day, and again on Sunday at 2:30 and 6:30PM. This is from their press release:
“IN THE PINK” celebrates the strength of women, exploring sexuality and
what it means to be a woman in real life and on Second Life. The
diverse collection of voices and actors guarantees a unique and highly
entertaining experience in both theater and in Second Life, as well as
an opportunity to contribute to organizations that support programs
that free women from violence. The play will be performed by avatars
from all over the world using voice and backed by slides, offering
insight and provoking discussion.
I ran into the lovely Rekka Berchot (pictured here), one of the performers in the play and set designer, hard at work getting the stage ready. She took a break from prim wrangling to chat and drop on me a cool umbrella and t-shirt for the production, which I will be proudly sporting for the next few days.
