At our last meeting, we talked about bringing back the Fire Dancers. One of our Elders, Ladyslipper Constantine, will lead this new sub-group of the virtual Lamplighters. This is an exciting more forward to bring a little bit more of Burning Man into BURN2.
While Fire Conclave and the Fire Dancers at Burning Man are comprised of several different groups of enthusiastic Burners, we are starting with a sub-group within the virtual Lamplighters, because since our formation we have always had the Fire Dancer role available; it was a vision to bring the Fire Dancers into the virtual setting and see how it grows.
If you are a member of the virtual Lamplighters group, you can contact Ladyslipper Constantine. If you have been a Fire Dancer at Burning Man and would like to add your spark to this endeavour, you will need to join the virtual Lamplighters group in Second Life, then contact Ladyslipper Constantine.
And, if you have never been in Second Life, but you have Fire Danced at Burning Man and would like to do so with the virtual Fire Dancers, you are most welcome to do so! Be sure to contact us and let us know – we will help you to create a Second Life account and find your way to the virtual Playa to join us.
Lamplighters are called to open the event called Santalarity at 10:00am SLT on Saturday, the 14th of December.
Join us in robes and flames, bring your drums and dance moves! Let’s bring the fire to the frozen playa.
We will gather at the Welcome Area on the Playa and perform a silent procession, light lamps, and kick off the annual Santalarity event with drumming, dancing and of course FIRE.
Meet us on the Playa! The location will be given here on the day of the event.
We will gather for our monthly drumming at our Village on the virtual Playa! We are truly excited and happy to be back HOME on a monthly basis to bring together our Burner friends and family. Everyone is welcome.
Join us on the first of December at 7:30pm SLT/Pacific Time and celebrate the joy of the season in true Burning fashion!
WE ARE CALLED!
We are called to the Burn, once again! This time it is the Skin Burn and it will take place twice on Saturday, the 9th of November, at 9:00am SLT and 6:00pm SLT. It is our privilege to bring our fire to the event, to inspire and spread the joy of the Burning community.
The playa is now CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC; check-in will open 2 hours before each Burn time. You will need to go to the off-playa check-in area and detach and de-script. Once down to just skins (system clothing optional) you will be invited into a special group and given the landmark to the playa. Be creative! Your skin can be art, infused with fire!
The check-in location will be open at 7am SLT and 4pm SLT:
BURN2 Skin Burn Check-in Area
WHAT DO WE DO?
We will lead the community to dance in the embers when the Burn winds down. iSkye Silverweb will be with the Burn crew under the Man. When the Burn winds down, iSkye will relay the signal to Freia Guillaume, then they will shout to our group, “Lamplighters, DANCE!” at which time you can do that thing you do so well – lead our community into the embers to the celebrate drumming, dance and FIRE.
Please come to one or both of the Burn times and share your special fiery spirit with all the Burning community!
The Lamplighter Elders
The Lamplighters will gather at the BURN2 Town Hall to drum and warm things up! Come wearing robes and drums and bring that Lamplighter spirit with you.
