“The Rave Empire” is a reading of an unfinished play based on the second part of Henrik Ibsen’s “Emperor and Galilean'' which talks about the life of the Roman Emperor Julian (361 to 363), referred to as "The Apostate" who led the last attempt in history to re-establish polytheism as a political philosophy and life practice. Ever since, monotheism has taken over, and our contemporary mental structure was formed, molded and framed by its linearity.
