Following the simply stunning two-month exhibit of the outstanding sculpture of Nessuno Myoo, we are taking a short “art break” but a new exhibit will open soon…and it will be a beautiful expression from one of SL’s most talented artists! You will note that some of Nessuno’s works remain, especiallyBack to Home and Spirit of Mechanical Angel, both of which will remain permanent parts of Ce Soir. How could we not add these into our environment? They fit perfectly, and we love them!
Soon, there will be a special exhibit to showcase the works of all the artists who graced the Ce Soir Arts Gallery in 2012 – our first year! We look forward to this lovely retrospective of the year in art at Ce Soir; it is much more than that, however, as each unique artist has continued in their explorations and work. How wonderful it is to be a small part in that! In addition, look for more plays and readings at the theatre. Tea with Ted & Sylviawill be repeated and we will be presenting special holiday programming as well.

Hallowe’enweek is finally here! A time celebrated across the grid, this seasonfest is scary, weird, and a whole lot of FUN! So, don your best costumery, get out your craziest animations, and doll yourself up – just right – and come on over! We have a WEEKFUL of MAGIC going, so don’t miss a minute!
Here’s the creepy schedule…muahaha!
★ Saturday 27 ★
The A List’s Culture and Art Weekend
We will have, of course, Nessuno Myoo‘s wonderful sculpture on exhibit and we welcome The A List and their members to enjoy anytime, especially from Noon to 2 PM today. Congratulations, Xzavier and RAFTWET on five years of serving up information about the best in SL entertainment…and more!
2 PM TEA with TED & SYLVIA: Aeon & Mireille present a programme of poetry by Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath at The Ce Soir Arts Theatre. This presentation is in Voice and will cover a conversation over tea, exploring the poetry of these two feted poets and their relationship. Stormy, at best, these two wrote prolifically and well, exploring such subjects as marriage, parenthood, life and death. These are striking works that must be shared. Come…sit by the fire and enjoy tea & poetry!
3 PM Russell Eponym reads poetry at The Magic Tree Reading Spot in Ce Soir. Come along for another hour of exceptional verse and reading with the inimitable Russell Eponym. Always enjoyable, the hour will fly as we relax and learn under the tender tutelage of our beloved professor and friend!

7 PM TwinGhost Ronas (or is that FRANKENTWIN???) brings his glorious music including the haunting “Live Again” (which just happens to be our FAVOURITE!). East Coast storms probably won’t interfere with this show, but be wary, TwinGhost! We want you to be safe!
★ Monday 29 ★
2 PM Saintess Larnia comes in with her smexy sweetness. I wonder what lurks behind? Hmmmm…
3 PM Voodoo Shilton gets us going with the thrilling Gypsy Jazz and a whole lot more – IF he can make it in because of the East Coast US storms. Voodoo, if you can’t make it, know that we are thinking of you! Be safe!

NOON Russell Eponym poetry recitation – always lovely and fun, we learn from Russell as we enjoy the very best in poetry every week. This reading will be as special – and we have an idea there will be some fright-night poems in the mix! Oooh!
2:30 PM NO EXIT is once more performed at The Ce Soir Arts Theatre! This time, semi-professional actors portray the roles of the three hapless souls who find themselves locked in hell with one another – forever – in this darkly comedic play by existential philosopher and playwright, Jean-Paul Sartre.

4 PM Samm Qendra for Nessuno Myoo‘s Closing Celebration: This is a very special event. Decorum, please, but let’s have fun too, celebrating the closing of Nessuno Myoo‘s outstanding sculpture exhibit. We’ve had the pleasure of hosting him for two months…and we just HAD to keep some of the sculptures around forever, so they won’t all disappear! Come help us bid him a fond adieu. Like all of our monthly Artists-in-Residence, Nessuno will be back. We will have a very special exhibit going at the end of the year… You don’t want to miss Samm! Her voice is unstoppable as she continues to amaze with her repertoire and sensitive performances.

3 PM Russell Eponym, The Music Whisperer, was the first musician to play at Ce Soir. That was by design, as he is the foundational artist in the digital world. Musician, artist, poet, actor, educator…Russell does it all. Come hear his wonderful “folk, blues, and beyond!”

NOON Sabreman Carter reads poetry at The Magic Tree Reading Spot in Ce Soir. Known across SL as a fine poet and reader, this lover of the written word will welcome you in for an hour of verse and light commentary. Do join us! NOTE: all of his tips are donated to Relay for Life in SL, a generous act that we admire.
Picture it: 3 PM SLT at Ce Soir, the space bathed in the light of a summer afternoon. The air is fresh and the sky a bright blue, the sun making his slow progress – drawn as if by magnets – to the coming of night. All is still except for the faint breeze that blows pleasantly past. Then, suddenly, what is that sound?
First, quietly, the unmistakeable tones of the acoustic guitar waft up and over the venue, washing it in shades of blues, flashes of brilliant gypsy jazz and flamenco, and sprinkled with international flavour and a classical point of view. Who could it be? If you are guessing premier guitarist Voodoo Shilton, you’re right on the money! He will arrive at 3 PM to thrill us with another journey around the world, our musical travel guide. Come ready for anything, as it’s always an enjoyable surprise!
And speaking of enjoyable surprises, the lovely Loreen Aldrin is up next, at 4 PM SLT. She’s amazing, and we are pleased to have her back at Ce Soir. This golden-throated singer-songwriter has quite a presence on stage. She can whisper a love song and belt out the blues, showing off her acumen with multiple languages at the same time. She commands her guitar and plays the piano beautifully. You will enjoy every moment of her music – guaranteed!
Do join us today for these two magnificent shows! And look for both Voodoo and Loreen on the calendar this summer…along with other fine musical artists who will bring their best to the Ce Soir stage.
