Theatre is Easy
November 4th, 2017

“Irons and Petty have attempted to translate Godard’s imagination to the stage...'Why Why Always' quotes 'Alphaville' in its clever use of live film projected on a scrim or the back wall...But this mixture of abstract multimedia and dialogue that was meant for film rather than the stage leaves any audience member unfamiliar with 'Alphaville' completely and utterly lost...'Why Why Always’ may leave people unengaged and uninterested in the story it tries to tell.”

“Jean-Luc Godard’s 'Alphaville' meets the ASMR phenomenon in Shaun Irons and Lauren Petty’s multimedia futuristic sci-fi noir...Irons and Petty reimagine the story using multiple monitors and cameras, live feeds and pre-recorded scenes, overlapping dialogue, disembodied voices, mirrors and scrims, and more, in black-and-white and color...It will keep you calmly stimulated and entertained throughout its ninety-minute running time.”
