For all you lovers of the ancient world, this is your special night September 28th. For all the uninitiated, now’s your chance. Sign up from 20h. Lilïod est un mot valise, une chimère entre l’Iliade et l’Odyssée, entre Lilith l’Insurgée et l’Odalisque amoureuse, entre l’iode du grand large et l’idiote du village.

Alors, que voulez-vous que l’on vous dise ! Lilïod n’est pas là pour réinventer la poudre d’artifice ou le fil à couper...
