It started out as a dream. We were reminiscing about the wonderful times we shared at the Trocadero Transfer. There, we would immerse ourselves in delicious music, light and dance. Beautiful music mixed seamlessly and choreographed with gorgeous glittering colored light.
Thus the idea for "Remember" the party was born. We wondered if enough like-minded people would gather together to enjoy a party such as this. Phone calls, emails, telegraphs and tribal drums were telling us that yes, there were people like us out there, people who were just waiting for such an event!
It was decided that there could be no better place than the former Trocadero Transfer, now known as the Glas Kat, for our party to take place. So it was that on the evening of Sunday April 18th 2004 at 6:00pm the doors opened and "Remember" the party began.
In true Trocadero tradition, we started the evening by smudging our space with Sage and Incense to clear the energy. The scent permeated the air as Robbie played some opening music, a classical piece. Cornmeal was spread on the dance floor to create a gliding smooth surface.
As the house lights were dimmed, the arc light was illuminated and the party began. From the first kick drum beat of Robbie's opening dance record the floor was filled. Smiling faces were bathed in the rich colored light of Miss Carla's arc lamp as it reflected from the mirror balls overhead. Bob Bear used light to act as percussion as it enhanced the flawless mixes of Robbie's music.
Hours passed by like minutes. Fan dancers and flag dancers created amazing fluttering flowing shapes to the music. Partygoers used tambourines, and finger symbols to enhance the rhythm as sumptuous orchestral strings and soulful vocals filled our eager ears. The crowd cheered as each song segued into the next, each one seeming like a wonderful familiar friend.
All too soon it was 2:30 and time for the last song. The crowd applauded, cheered and called for more. It was time to leave, go back to our respective lives. As the house lights came up hugs kisses and phone numbers were exchanged. Was this goodbye, or au revoir?
Yes, it did start out as a dream, but thanks to all of you who came to "Remember" it became a reality. The lights and music were only a part of the evening. It was the spirit of all who were there that made it a true party. The White Light Productions family would like to thank all of you for helping our dream come true. a magical moment in time at the space lovingly called "The Troc."
