Welcome to the Sin Aesthesia LJ. This journal is specifically for those individuals involved in the performance of Sin Aesthesia (an Estrogen Pool production in association with the Penis Gallery). If you're reading this you're involved in the show in one aspect or another. This is open to posting for all so any comments, cusswords, suggestions or questions about the show are welcome here. The production staff will use this journal to communicate to the performers (i.e. rehearsals, ideas, deadlines and any other pertinent information regarding Sin Aesthesia).

What is Sin Aesthesia?

It's a show evoking the aspect of the 19th/early 20th century vaudville/traveling sideshow with a few twists and turns if not some blatant mockery. Dancing girls, fire eaters/dancers, strong men, circus freaks, geeks and a slew of performers all come together under the strict eyes of their ringmasters/barkers Madame Cherie and her consort Rooster. Things don't always go as planned. On any given night, the audience has opened up to one page in a long-running (dare I say, neverending?) story and they catch a glimpse of this dark carnival, this twisted tribe of people at their most human. Oppulant dance numbers, hilarious comedy sketches, daring fire dances all frame the story of the moment...of a jilted lover? an innocent woman being wooed by the charms of this life? a strong scotsman with frilly lace under his kilt?

Have you experienced Sin Aesthesia?

So I've been working on a mock-up for my skirt and I think it'll work well. I'm using Sean's idea of leaving the tweed panels open down the side, lacing them, then pulling the laces for the can can. I also ordered the shirt and I've already gotten the stockings -- very cool. Do you guys have a bloomers pattern? I hate sewing pants.

I was also thinking about the idea of the librarian making notes about people's vices in a book. How 'bout if she writes them up on catalog cards? She can write down their associated Library of Congress cataloging number (HQ71 - sexual deviations), and then give out the cards later. Maybe part of the viral marketing thing: stamp the show's URL on the back and hand them out?

Speaking of other groups doing the can-can/sideshow thing, there was a group that performed during the intermission at the WorldCon masquerade. They did a Moulin Rouge-inspired musical storyline, very similar to the movie, in fact, but the can-can dancers were all SciFi movie characters: Princess Lei, Delenn from Babylon 5, etc. Very cute, but the storyline was a little uncomfortable, not sure whether it wanted to be Moulin Rouge or something original. They ripped off more than a few of the musical numbers (The Hills are Alive, Roxanne), then tried to add a new storyline. The show just wasn't sure what it wanted to be.

The group is called Lux After Dark. Here’s an article about them (http://wiki.enigmata.org/index.php?title=Lux_Theater) and their website with their advertising stuff (http://www.luxtheater.com/indexlad.html).
