Thursday's Fiction's SL Stills
Enter the virtual world of Thursday’s Fictions, a surreal dance fantasy film.

Thursday’s Fictions is the story of a woman who tries to cheat the cycle of reincarnation to get eternal life. Cheating the confines of any single artform, this project about reincarnation, which has already transmigrated from the page to the stage to the screen, now brings the spiritual and the artist to Second Life.

Thursday’s Fictions has the raw intensity, epic dimensions and fantastical imagery of legend or myth. It is a multi award-winning dreamlike film, adapted from the book, Thursday’s Fictions, by Dr Richard James Allen, which was short-listed for the Kenneth Slessor Prize for Poetry at the 2000 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards.

The creation of Thursday’s Fictions in Second Life is a collaboration by leading Australian dance filmmakers Dr Richard James Allen and Dr Karen Pearlman of The Physical TV Company and Australia’s foremost authority on Second Life, Gary Hayes. The initiative is supported by the Literature Board of the Australia Council through its The Story of the Future project, the Australian Film Television and Radio School through LAMP, the ABC through its Innovation and Arts Departments, and The Project Factory.
