The Red Light Quadrant & DJ Doug- Imagine if you will, music, lights and general frolic and frivality.

This stage brings to life all the beauty that the heavens have to offer in self expression mixed with movement and music. There is a platform for all types of expression through dance and movement including two shadow screens for those that wish to not really be seen. But noticed for the freedom that is allowed by ambiguity. these frame an 8'x 8' bubble screen giving an interactive dancing experience for all those that choose to play in a galaxy of bubbles. In front of all this intergalatic mind warp we have the staff of creativity from wich one may frolic, spin, climb, and perhaps keep ones balance in a time of need. from here we move down to an earthly realm of playa where those willing souls move to the intense beat of intergalactic music. created for the soul purpose moving the soul to realms unknown, bring
together light,sound, movement, and Soul. A place to stage the hopes dreams and desires of all that encounter the magical place known as ........ "The Red Light Quadrant"
