In Las Vegas, the optics do all the work. From the fountains of Bellagio and the petroglyphs of Red Rock Canyon to the monumental curvature of Hoover Dam, our eyes are always engaged, relaying images of a glittering city that never stops giving us something to gaze at. But what is it like to observe Las Vegas as an insider, who can always check out, but never leave?
In this 14th volume of the annual Las Vegas Writes series, 14 local writers and artists explore what Las Vegas is really like in the “back of house,” the locations and experiences that visitors rarely see. Feather Shows examines lives at the other end of the rainbow, of people trapped in the belly of the neon capital that hypnotizes everyone except those who actually live here. How do they manage to carve out a real existence even as the fantasy blazes away in the darkness and light?
See for yourself!
