Dedicated project site:

It is seventeen minutes past midnight, Oceanic Time. You’re sitting in a theater of sorts — a show is about to begin — there is an occasional flicker of light — a sonic shudder — an atmosphere of electronic energy — you look down at the program in your hand, black letters spell the words Why Why Always

In this sci-fi misadventure of secret agents and seductresses, where Alphaville meets ASMR — mesmeric whispers fill the air, lighters flash, linens are folded, and a super computer is foiled.Why Why Always conjures a live cine-performance through the interplay of otherworldly video, music, sound and technology.

Performers (live): Jim Fletcher, Elizabeth Carena, Laura Bartczak, Marion Spencer

Performers (video): Scott Shepherd, Madeline Best 

Narration: Christina Campanella

Why Why Always is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
