Some Ideas to Jump-start Your Own Creative Interpretations


  • Write a song from Lilith to Eve
  • Make a playlist of songs that relate in some way to Lilith and the ideas surrounding her


  • Create a dance about a moment in  Lilith’s story: her creation, her expulsion from Eden, or her relationship with people of later generations
  • In a small group, create a dance between Adam, Lilith and Eve (and, if you wish, God) depicting a key moment in the story


  • Write a diary entry in Lilith’s voice after her expulsion from the garden. Or, choose a moment in history (ancient, medieval, modern) and write in Lilith’s voice from that moment
  • Freewrite: what does Lilith mean to you? How do you relate to her character? Does she remind you of any aspects of yourself? Does she inspire you, or frighten you?
  • Summarize Lilith’s story in six words
