Sci-Fi Fantasy Variety Show
Since Norwescon has gone digital, the convention will feature digital acts created by our performers on video. Join us on Friday for:
Sparkle and Doom Productions presents an evening of science fiction and fantasy themed acts. The show will be followed by a discussion about the showcase and how to create your very own act, digital or on stage!
Performances created by: Aetheria • Emery StoneD • Mariana • Mercury Divine • Michelle • Nazaneen • Savannah Demers • Tiphany Starr
This show is for all ages. We look forward to seeing your lovely faces there on the computer screen.
Aetheria has performed in the greater Seattle area for over ten years and has traveled to many national stages. She also teaches flow workshops locally and at festivals. Check her out on Instagram @ladyaetheria.
David is a life-long fantasy fan and gamer with a love of live performance. His high energy personality and deep love of all things ‘geek’ bring laughter and involvement to any show he emcees.
Emery is a nonbinary drag thing who isn’t sure what’s going on all the time. They do, however, invite you along for the ride—you never know where it’ll go!
Mariana is a professional bellydancer residing in the Pacific Northwest. She is a fan of space-based fiction and enjoys blending storytelling, costuming, prop, and dance skills to deliver a fun and engaging performance suitable for all ages.
Mercury Divine is Seattle’s Dandiest Dandy, and the King of 1000 Faces. Equal parts nonsense, narrative, and nudity, this king brings you full technicolor absurdity—onstage, on screen, and on the street! For maximum enjoyment find them on Instagram, at @mercurydivine.
Michelle is an artist, designer and performer. Enjoyed for her enigmatic mix of approachability, classic glamour and geeky humor, you’ll find her getting down and dirty with the details of costume making, dissecting a dance move segment by segment and listing off random history facts. Which isn’t surprising for a former member of marching band/colorguard, U.S. Navy Vet, Fiber Arts Major turned Feldenkrais® practitioner. Michelle BellyDance and @michellebellydance on Instagram.
Coming to you from Seattle by way of Miami, Iran, and Germany, Nazaneen is a teacher, performer, and lifelong student of SWANA dances (that’s south-west Asia and North Africa), including raqs sharqi, Persian dances, and pan-Arabic folk dances. In addition to all things related to SWANA dance, she’s a lover of food, combat sports, and cats. She unfortunately occasionally has to be distracted from these pursuits to teach chemistry to college students.
Savannah Demers is a veteran in the Northwest performing arts community. Her dance style has been described as unapologetic, modern, and powerful. Find her on Facebook @Savannahdances to keep up with her performance schedule.
Tiphany Starr is Seattle’s Mistress of Sparkle and Doom. Tiphany has over two decades of theatrical experience and is known for creating character pieces for her dance productions. She performs as a solo artist in Seattle and Honolulu (well, pre-COVID) and is the producer of Sparkle and Doom Productions. It is important to her to produce shows that have LGBTQ and body-positive representation. This year she is bringing a multi-genre sci-fi cabaret for your viewing pleasure.
