A True Love Story Debunked, Explained & Demonstrated Through The Moves And Words Of Lyrykz!

This true love story between Lyrykz & the art of dancing is something we could almost categorize as #relationshipgoals. Indeed, as Montreal‘s favorite street dancer, choreographer & model; the artist turned businesswoman turned her intense passion into a career in front of our very eyes.

Somebody once told me: ”Quit this damn job and go get what you want!”. Anxious & scared to go broke, I jumped from this plane called destiny with the hope to land safely. Here I am living this dream of mine, writing about another inspirational individual that had to go through the same process (can I get a round of applause for the irony?).

Lyrykz probably had the same friend that told her to ”Quit this damn job” or maybe it was this voice in her head. You know that pastor-like voice that reminds you in a serious-toned-life-changing-manner that the time is now?

”I Move Because I Got To Express Something That I Can’t Express With Words

So I Just Let My Body Talk For Me”

With that little voice in mind and a whole lot of passion, she went on to ”Quit this damn job” and started as a street dancer. What other performers would normally see as a bunch of ”Oh Wow” & ”She Killed It” from the crowd, was, in fact, an exchange of energy for the young professional dancer to be.

She would feed off the crowd’s energy only to give it back in return through powerful dance moves and emotions. It was hard for me to grasp this way of thinking since my dancing career never went further than my eternal two steps in the club (I’m dead serious ya’ll).

Expressing an emotion through body language & rhythm; crazy right? What sounded crazy to me is the fact that it was a way of life for Lyrykz and I ultimately felt like I had to capture that.

Which We Did Here

All of this came to life with a simple question: ”Could you show us what’s your relationship with the art of dancing? Could you express this true love story in front of a camera so we could feel it?”.

What Was Meant To Be A Challenge

Turned Out To Be An Exercise 

For This Choreographer (Seriously).

If you notice at the very beginning, she was taking my hand through the stairs and beside my impeccable hand acting skills, the whole idea was to take you (the viewer) through this love affair.

The same way rappers scream ”No Pen, No Pad” before they go & kill it, Lyrykz freestyled the whole session and still hit the target.

Which she did (a little too well). See this is passion in its rawest form.

Emotions guide your steps, facial expressions, and cadence. The desire to outperform yourself and show the world what you’re made of.

When you dance, you express yourself and convey a message deeper than dance moves.

Understanding each other without words is something we’ve tried to figure out for centuries but it seems like dancers knew the answers we didn’t (when Sway actually got the answers).

Is It  A True Love Story?

For Lyrykz it’s deeper than your average ”girl meets boy” story. A passion & a dream she’s committed to on a day to day basis. Name any couples you know and I bet you whatever you want that their commitment is not as deep.

In 2 and half minutes she definitely turned me into a believer (30 seconds in I was already convinced actually). For more dopeness from this artist, we HIGHLY recommend ya’ll to get familiar with her Instagram where all the magic happens.

She also got her Snapchat game together as well and you can see for yourself @Phuckyosteez01 or get some of her precious insights on Facebook

Malefycia Is Restoring The Feeling, One Spooky Scream At A Time

Long are the days when I was cruising down the streets on October 31st either looking for candies to devour for 3 weeks straight or even as an adult looking for a popping club where I could tell people ”My costume is ME tonight”.

The truth is, I think Malefycia restored something that I thought was buried inside me. They reminded me that not only I liked Halloween but I just couldn’t find an alternative in my adult life to spark my curiosity on one side and get the thrill going on the other.

Malefycia been around for a minute but this year they’re trying something different…I mean different.

You’re familiar with the 7 sins in the bible don’t you? You’re aware of what a haunted house is supposed to be don’t you? Well, something in their team had the genius and actually vicious idea to combine these two things who might have nothing to with each other on the outside looking in but in this new adventure/haunted house experience; it all make sense!

their show called V7CE is cross theatre performance, cross the most scary thing you’ve ever seen. The show includes different scenes and interactive plays putting on the forefront the 7 sins from the bible.

What always stand out to me when it comes to Malefycia, is there raw and authentic attention to details.

Do yourself a favor and come immerse yourself in this universe and your inner child and your thrill-seeking inner adult have some fun.

What I appreciate the most about my work is the fact that I get to meet great minds & humans with a powerful story and this time around, I got to cross path with the talented Myraï Lavoie.

The city has been quiet fashion wise over the years and as platform that mostly talked about fashion in its inception, we’ve felt it the most over here.

There would be sparks of hope here and there but besides Festival De Mode & Design, not a lot of things really stood out.

When I heard about ”The Glitch” it’s like I knew what it was about without nothing what it was about.

I mean good branding is good branding but it was more so who’s behind the good branding this time around. I had the chance to work with Myraï Lavoie in the past and one thing I can is : there’s a method to her madness.

Every artist has an eye and that eye is shaped by our views of the world and life experiences. Myraï had an interesting life.

One where being different is actually the move. One where if you don’t fit somewhere, you don’t try to get in the mold, you bend it.

For all the lack of support or misunderstand she got in Montreal, she found a place to be creative working or being in room with the likes of Paris Hilton & P. Diddy to name a few.

What she’s learned from coming out of her shell and experiencing the world she’s about the share it with us with her own fashion called ”The Glitch” tonight.

”The Glitch” is exactly what I thought it was going to be. A standout experience and experience and something you’ve never seen before just like its creator.

We are now entering an era where we want to know more about what is going on on the other side of the world.

How people are living, their culture and what is their reality compared to ours.

Sometimes the depiction of such reality is either unfair or made to look down at somebody. Other times, filmmakers have the challenge to depict a reality in a way to uplift what other cultures are bringing to the table.

Milan Bihlmann and Muammer Yilmaz are two filmmakers who know where they stand when it comes to that.

Rêves D’Afrique” is the epidemy of that. The two filmmakers decided to go to 7 countries in Africa to not only paint the picture for the world but to give the good people out there something we forget to give one another : ”a piece of yourself’.
