De laatste ademtocht van Ik R.I.P.

Theatermaker Alix Adams was de Petrus van de avond en wees ons de weg richting het witte licht. Iedereen was gevraagd de kleren te dragen waarin je wel dood gevonden zou willen worden. DJs Koen Nova en Katja Nutters zorgden voor de juiste sfeer. En na middernacht gingen we met doodskisten spelen...

Alix Adams bereidde mensen voor op hun dood tijdens deze avond. Bij de ingang van Mediamatic BANK zat een waarzegster die voorspelde op welke leeftijd je zal sterven. Daarna kon je naar de kelder waar stylisten je er uit lieten zien alsof je laatste uur had geslagen. Alix vroeg aan iedereen wiens doodsvonnis was getekend om op een podium hardop terug te kijken op hun leven. Waar hadden ze hun tijd aan verspild en wat waren hun laatste woorden? Dan was het tijd om afscheid te nemen van het publiek en naar de hemel te vertrekken. Hier werden de doden ontvangen door engelen met champagne. Maar de doden kwamen telkens weer naar beneden en spookten als geesten door de ruimte...

Tijdens de hele avond was het mogelijk om een kartonnen doodskist te versieren. In het begin waren mensen nog terughoudend, maar zodra ze begonnen aan een ontwerp waren ze niet meer te stoppen! De avond veranderde in een knutselfeest en aan het eind was de hele vloer bezaaid met doodskisten en enthousiaste kist-ontwerpers. Iedereen deed mee en werkte samen. We maakten kisten waar laatste wensen op waren geschreven, kisten met prachtige schilderijen en tekeningen, Paas-kisten, kisten voor opa's en Sinterklaas en een kist met een Michael Jackson-thema. Het was erg leuk om met de kisten te spelen!

Going up to the Afterlife (smoke version) - Accompanied by a selection of songs or sound one could make a journey to heaven. Angels would be waiting for you (so they said downstairs).

Our Angels working in Afterlife - In the Afterlife two Angels were waiting for the wannabe dead people. Celebrating arrival with champagne one could have very good and philosophic talks with other dead people. Some died after an attack from a crocodile, other drifted too far on their air mattress, didn't wake up from their sleep or collapse after a wonderfull orgasm (well in their minds anyway).

Deborah (in afterlife costume), talking the firemen (in their real life costumes: smoke alarm - The smoke screen in the Afterlife caused a silent alarm somewhere at the Fire Department. Six big men showed up. They looked surprised and amuzed by the get-together of wannabe dead people. From then on the Afterlife was smokeless but nonetheless pleasant.
