Lilith is an arcaic myth preceding the myth of Eve: for the Sumerians she is a black virgin that during nights strangles kids in their cradles; in the Middle Age she's a witch that seduces like only the Evil is able to do; in the Assyrian mitology she's an asexual Demon, then female, then male; in the Bible she's a character full of spit and blood. Lilith is the first partner of Adam, who refuses the sexual submission and is transformed by God into a nocturnal demon. A contemporary theatre show built around a "devil who always lies, a bad woman, or better, a super bad woman".
Is Lilith my name.
Lilith in my language means night and storm.
Indeed, I'm a devil who always lies.
Too of what I say and I do is evil.
Have a suspect: I'm bad, so bad.
