Inspire Each Other
Gala Opening May 4th @ 1pm SLT
Elysium Amphitheatre Dance Troupe
Artistic Dances on stage inspired by Toy's Art
Toysoldier Thor is extremely honoured to have been invited back to the amazing prestigious SecondLife® Fashion & Art Gallery of Paris Metro Couture / Gallery to be the featured Artist for May 2014. Toy has taken this opportunity to coordinate what will likely be one of Paris Metro Gallery's most amazing collaborative theme and Opening Gala ever witnessed by the visiting patrons / guests.
The Theme is ART BEGATS ART where Fine Art, Fashion, Dance & Music Inspire Each Other
This theme was directly inspired by Babypea Von Phoenix, one of the most creative and energetic artistic dance and stage creators within the fantastic community of artistic dance in SecondLife®. In February 2014 Babypea approached Toy with the idea to challenge her Elysium Amphitheatre dance members to create a dance / stage creation based on any one of the artworks on display at Toy's Inworld Art Gallery. Toy was honoured to be the inspirational source to this artistic challenge of dance - a community that Toy personally has a deep passion to be part of.
The participating Elysium Dancer spent over a month selecting the artwork that inspired them and creating a stage, dance, music, and choreography to be performed on the Elysium Amphitheatre stage at Copperhead Road sim.
Toy blogged all the details of this artistic dance challenge which all can read about.
On March 22nd Elysium perform their beautiful dances. Toy created a machimina of the entire show that you see to the right.

The artworks Toy selected for the two floor Paris Metro exhibit are those that were selected by the Elysium Dancers for their show. It is a mix of 2D wall art and 3D mesh sculptures.
In addition, Toy has also developed a multi-media interactive screen that will allow visitors to the gallery to actually watch the machimina of the March 22rd Elysium performance. All visitors have to do is ensure their media is enabled and their PC's Flash / Quicktime is up to date.
Then they double click the play button on the screen and watch the machimina right in the gallery !
As patrons of the Paris Metro Gallery Opening Galas are very aware of and one of the highlights of the galas, Paris Zsun releases the latest of her "Artist Series" fashion line and offers the new dress as a special gift to all guests at the Gala.
The released dress is special as integrates one of the artworks in the exhibit for the material texture as selected by Paris Zsun. For Toy's exhibit, his real life photo of a Dandelion was used for the dress. You can see the resulting fashion created by Paris Zsun that guests will received at the Sunday May 4th Gala.
She has so amazingly integrated the white head of the dandelion to become the top trim of the dress with a beautiful dark grass green flowing bottom of the dress. This will likely be a new hit for the "Artist Series".
Toy, Paris Metro, and the Elysium Dancers all hope you will come May 4th at 1pm SLT to share in what will be one of Paris Metro's most amazing art gala openings ever hosted.
