The latest episode of Designing Worlds – a visit to the beautiful and creative region of Idle Rogue home of the famous Guerilla Burlesque, the After Dark Club and so much more – is now on the web!
We are shown around some of the many venues that are contained on Idle Rogue (and Wildstar Beaumont was on hand to capture photographs of more), as we explore the region with the owner and moving force behind the community, Cherryblonde Scribe, and with other active members of the community – Sho Kyong, POL Arida and Arrehn Oberlander.
Sho Kyong shows us the gradual evolution of a dance, taking inspiration from one of POL’s songs. We explore how the sets, the choreography and the music are all combined to create the final performance. And we see how the Metaharper tools are used – designed by Arrehn Oberlander, this scripting system not only enables choreography in the conventional way but also – as Saffia discovers – allows people to try out dances for themselves.
And all this takes place in a stunningly lovely region with a strong community that really is a joy to explore.
