2011 Odyssey Performance Art Festival Schedule


Thursday July 7 – 12 Noon SLT
Parade from Sugar Mountain
Odyssey Avatar Parade with Pyewacket Kazyanenko (Aus)
We’re kicking off Odyssey Performance Art Festival with a parade. Led by Pyewacket Kazyanenko the event will start off on top of Sugar Mountain on Odyssey and parade down, through and around the sim.

All avatars are encouraged to bring friends & robots, think carnival, animal, wacky, invisible or what ever you want. During the event all are encouraged to rezz outrageous things, vehicles, oddly shaped prims, fruit and funny hats, to set off explosives, particles and sounds. Celebrate being an avatar and march together whether you be friends, enemies or unlikely lovers.

The parade will end at a small stage where all avatars are invited to perform. Be Big! Make Noise! The Odyssey Avatar Parade!

Avatar Orchestra Metaverse (International)
The Avatar Orchestra Metaverse is a global collaboration of composers, artists and musicians that approaches the virtual reality platform Second Life as an instrument itself. The Orchestra conceives, designs and builds its own virtual instruments, making it possible for each individual performer in the Orchestra to trigger sounds independent from one another and to play together in real time. These instruments feature sound, visuals, and animations. AOM will perform a unique concert on Odyssey featuring the composition Xaana.

Saturday July 9th – VB16 – Gracie/Kris
Gracie Kendall/Kristine Shomaker (USA) and the Vaneesa Blaylock Company
a performance by Gracie Kendal
In VB15 on July 9th 2011, Gracie will offer 16 avatars, 16 variations of identity, 16 life possibilities, for the audience to consider in this performance where the body is presented directly before the audience, unmediated by the brush of the painter or the lens of the photographer.

Gracie Kendal, also known as Kristine Schomaker in real life, just completed her Thesis for the Masters Degree in Art with the execution of her “My Life as an Avatar” www.graciekendal.wordpress.com where she utilizes installation, text, photography, mixed media, video and performance to explore her real life through the lens of her second life avatar.

“I am projecting myself onto another form and confronting my own imperfections,” Kendal says. “My work deals with the process of becoming self-aware while living in a media-saturated, technologically advancing society.”

SENSES PLACES
Mixed Reality Participatory Performance Environment
Todd Cochrane and Isabel Valverde
Physical site: Fridge Gallery, C Bloc, Wellington Institute of Technology,
23-27 Kensington Av., Petone

This mixed reality participatory performance will involve Movement/Dance and Sound/Music Improvisation, amongst physical bodies, and physical bodies and avatars. Keyboard-free alternative modes of embodied interfacing will be enabled by video livestream in SL of the physical participants at Betone, NZ, and, possibly, Tokyo, Japan, Webcam and Wiimote interfacing (software objects to be shared) for physical and remote participants.

Senses Places continues the ongoing experimental dance-technology collaborative research work from Real Virtual Games through Weathering In, towards critically expanding kinesthetic/synesthetic perceptions and communication, engaging physical and physical-virtual Contact and Somatic Movement based Improvisation, Sound, and body-environment climate interactions.

We focus on challenging choreographic/designed/devised relationships amongst participants, with/through mediated doubles (video image and/or avatar), and with aspects of the responsive environment, which would benefit, enrich, bringing agency to embodied subjects within a post-human corporeal condition.

Interdimensional Call
Kai Steamer
Interdimensional Call
The energy of the universe flows through everything, allows us to have sensory experiences, communicate with each other and is not limited to only the virtual world. It is also present in other dimensions of our reality, like that unknown world: the so-called ‘physical world.’
A ritual of initiation and purification is needed; an encounter with the operator that every avatar has. Whether you believe in them or not, they rule our destiny.
A communication channel will be opened with one of them. Are there any messages for us out there?


Sunday July 17 – 2 PM SLT
MASS.LIVE.NU (The Future of Social Mass Media)
Ze Moo

  2. *(deleted post above, nasty typo)Thank you Fau, Liz and the Odyssey crew for putting together this year's festival. What a lively first day it was too!Uploaded some new shots to my set on Flickr, will add more soon. The Odyssey group on Flickr doesn't accept Restricted content so I couldn't add most of the shots from Alan's performance -http://www.flickr.com/photos/crabcult/sets/72157624933964188/with/5914366436/

  3. Hello all, Just wanted to correct the SLT date on the Senses Places Participatory Performance. It is on Saturday 16th at 1 AM, not the 15th. Although it seems like Friday night it will be already Saturday. Thanks to Fau and Liz at Odyssey GalleryLooking forward to perform with you,Butler2 Evelyn/Isabel Valverde
