Welcome to the Dark Cabaret
The Dark Cabaret is an idea I have been playing with for a few years, the term seemed appropriate to second life in that it has a seperation from the daylight of the 'real life' and that it sometimes allows for the expression of some rather dark and to some extent 'hidden' things. This results in a 'Cabaret' of sorts where I find myself in the company of other actors on a stage that is not confined by the norms or real life. My second life is a Dark Cabaret on many levels.
My land, my home, my 'spot' in second life is also called the Dark Cabaret. Its a small theater and club set in the urban London streets I grew up in, this is not the London of postcards and tourist hotspots but the London that most people on below average incomes live and survive in, this is in a sense a 'Dark Cabaret' that is played by many in the real world.
