of the forbidden
of my re-birth
of my past
of my present
of my future
of the Genesis
Lilith is the first feminist figure of the Judeo-Christian religions. She is the free woman; therefore, demonized, satanized. This is who I want to become. And we will celebrate – Mexican style: piñata, colors, blood/booze, occult, myths.
Thou shalt to paradise come
Thou shalt celebrate come
Thou shalt on the 95th day of his(story) life come
Thou shalt at the hour of his(story) death come
Thou shalt free be
Thou shalt sin
Thou shalt enjoy
Thou shalt respect
Thou shalt be rewarded
Thou shalt attend!
EXPECT SOME RELIGIOUS MEXICANISM
Maarten Keus: Adam: self-sacrifices himself
Leyla Benouniche: Eve: gains her strenght through expression
Marlot Meyer: Snake: seduces everyone
Pamela Varela: Lilith: celebrates and liberates
Lilith, the first woman, before Eve
Born from the same dust as Adam
Who refused to be subservient to him
And left him
This is who I choose to be in my XXIII birthday party. And we will break Adam.

"as much as it can be a very communal and sharing experience, it is also very individualistic"
"everyone wants to get in this state of getting lost into the dance"
"it is the nearest thing to kind of your church, it is to go to the club."
"the consumption of the drugs we take, usually 7 or 8, and it is bouncing so both your body and your mind are in the right situation"

"they don’t call it trance music for no reason"
"to be in another world, to be with people and strangers and connect through a different form and dialogue - through movement"
"look at this crowd and they are all kind of moving at the same rhythm"
"without it there is no place where you can really be free and just kind of go and be in the same mood or environment as people"
"sometimes just closing your eyes and just feeling it, what the sounds do to your body and to your state of being"
"and you just feel each others’ rhythms and you create a dialogue through movement and you really speak to each other"
"I think drugs by… for me, for example, I like to say it is a shortcut to enlightenment"
"it is important to leave you bubble sometimes, to enter another bubble, the party bubble"
"but I think music taste says a lot about who you are and who you wanna be with"
"when you stand back and watch the party and feel those people having fun. you are part of it but you can also observe"
"to dance, to forget everything, to forget having a self, to see friends, to talk about stupid things -and serious- but more stupid"
"dancing. It was only about dancing"
"and it feels like music are like waves and they tututu are bouncing you from left to right…"
For ravers, the rave is community, expression, freedom & DANCE. The voices of my raver friends speak to you in this interactive documentary / VR experience. When you get close to them, you can hear their thoughts. I presented this in a happening, intertwining reality with virtuality.
