Fantasy Faire has always welcomed and featured some of the most imaginative, inspired and creative shows on our shared virtual world. This year we have two whole stages dedicated to their enchantment: Astrid’s Nemeton and The Story Well. Some of the shows take place in one, some in the other, allowing a larger variety of entertainment than ever before!

DRUM’s goal is to bring the world to you via the power of drumming. Our aim is to have fun and to create incredibly beautiful rhythms – live.
Members of the DRUM group have collaborated to create the unique sounds, drums, and animations that enable us to perform. Our performances are live and are subtly different each time – they are not pre-recorded music. The sounds are created right within Second Life. We then send them out and back in via stream in order to provide you with a lag free experience! We hope you enjoy our performances as much as we enjoy providing them.
Right now our performances consists of 10 different drum cultures, Taiko (Japanese), Native American, African, Latin, Indian, Mallets, Stomp Wall, Rusty Barrel, African Ghost, Brazilian, and Steel Pan drums. We are planning many new exciting sets for the near future!

Le Cirque des Rêves by Luxe Girls Burlesque Troupe at The Story Well
- Sunday April 22nd, 10 AM SLT
The Luxe Girls have been entertaining the members of Elysion since 2015. Their shows are most often a mix of individual and group acts around a given theme. Each dancer chooses her music, builds her own set and choreographs her dance. This makes for an entertaining and eclectic mix of acts because each Luxe Girl has her own unique talents to bring to the stage every month.
Home Theater – The Luxe at Elysion on Les Reves sim in Second Life.
Syn Beresford, owner of Elysion and Stage Mama to the Luxe Girls, hosts and DJ’s the shows as well as provides creative input and set design for many of the group acts.
The Luxe Girls will be returning to the Fantasy Faire this year with Le Cirque des Reves, their interpretation of Erin Morgenstern’s “The Night Circus”. Music and concept by DJ Lucid Hurricane with set design by Syn and the Luxe Girls and choreography and costumes by the Luxe Girls. This is a show you don’t want to miss!
Dance Into Another World by MaHal at The Story Well
- Saturday April 28th, 7 AM SLT
MaHal 129 – Dance into Another World
This is MaHal’s third appearance in the Fantasy Faire.
And this year we are very happy and proud that we can introduce two wonderful choreographers from Japan.
The First stage is “Cats” by Sakisa Mazi. She has been choreoing long time, but this is the first performance in FF. Her troup dance to a famous musical number “Cats”. Can you imagine how you can perform it in SL? She makes it possible with Miku-Miku Dance Motions, not just mocap anims! Her stage is very unique and imaginative, and I have been impressed by her choreos. I believe she will show you the magic. I’m so proud and excited to introduce her to FF. Don’t miss it!
Next troup is led by Ask Fenrir. She is a member of Dance Club Arty, and choreoing strenuously. The title is Kyubi no Kitsune – The fox of nine tails. It is based on a legendary fox that is under the spell of a brujo magician. The fox tries to break the spell and revenge the magician. The magician detects the vibe of the fox and… The battle between the fox and the magician is breathtaking. The Japanese world will enchant you!
Lastly, MaHal perform to 9 numbers. Our stage is small and backdrops are simple, but that means you can see dancers’ moves more clearly. We use various choreo effects so you can experience another world. You will see the combinations of mirrored anims. Time differences add variety and velocity to moves. Feel the thrill of dancers narrowly escape each other.

Pygmalion by Q&Q Fearless Theater at The Story Well

- Thursday April 26th, 4 PM SLT
George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion! Like nothing you have ever seen or heard in Second Life!
Live! Fully produced! A Broadway show complete in a virtual world!
Pygmalion is a play by George Bernard Shaw, named after a Greek mythological figure. It was first presented on stage to the public in 1913. In ancient Greek mythology, Pygmalion fell in love with one of his sculptures, which then came to life. The general idea of that myth was a popular subject for Victorian era English playwrights. Shaw’s play has been adapted numerous times, most notably as the musical My Fair Lady and its film version.
Quill & Quarrel is a MILESTONE THEATER
So far as we know, when Dramatists Play Service licensed the QQF’s production of WIT it was the VERY FIRST time a Broadway show has been licensed for inworld production!
The Quill & Quarrel exists to take the lead in bringing what is a very very old art form….into the 21st century and beyond. Just as Second Life itself expands our community around the world the Q&Q Fearless Theater makes a GLOBAL theater a reality. Shakespeare and HIS ‘Globe Theater‘ ….would be proud!
