Rome, April 2005. The Pope is dead. I’m searching for a place called Bluemoon whose owner is Schichi and where an eros dancer performs evrynight. Rome is full of “cuaria eclesiastica” waiting for the Pope. Then I realized two, apparently different societies, join the joy of celebrating “la bianca fumata”: the bells are ringing while Michaela dances following the rhythm of Shakira in the Bluemoon.
Valencia, April 2006. The new Pope is coming. I remember Rome and I decide to edit an experimental video installation for 2 or 3 independent screens where I try to express my feelings about double morality related to religion and pornography. Then, another question emerges: will religion or pornography have such a strong effect on humanity without music or sounds? With out the usual sounds?
I decide to play with all this and the result is: BLUEMOON: MICHAELA & EROS.
