"Degas Dances"

Ballet Pixelle© is a ballet company that performs in virtual and physical space. This original ballet "Degas Dances", was schoreographed by Innara Saarinen with music by Kurt Bestor. The dancers are from all over the world and they manipulate their avatars to dance with each other and the music in real time. Our goal is to explore and extend physical and virtual dance and movement and to blend those realities. We present neo-classical, contemporary, and eclectic works with all original animations, choreography, and musical scores. The works are presented in real-time with virtual/digital dancers, musicians, physical dancers, and audiences from all over the world. The Company is in its sixth year and works in the global digital community called Second Life®.
