FUN THINGS TO DO IN DETROIT »

In the wee hours of the morning, ravers swirl amid a fog of sound and light in the in long abandoned Eastown Theater. 

One can make out the outlines the stage of the Eastown Theater from this balcony view. A projection plays across the decaying curtains above the stage while a lower projection, derived from a live video camera, focuses on the performing DJ behind the screen.  In the foreground, light sticks illuminate the whirling dancers.

The fabulous ruins of Detroit have played key role in the rise of  "techno beat " music culture and its communal expression in the form of late night parties known as "raves".

From these often despised ruins, a new and powerful international cultural movement was born.

 I invite you on a voyage of discovery of a much maligned culture framed within the elegant ruins of the once grand Eastown Theater on  Detroit's lower east side.
