Everyday Murder is a FREE participatory performance that takes place in front of La MaMa. The story evolves around a murder. The audience/passers by can ask each of the two performers (one of them is the murderer) any question about their life and their involvement. The audience member decides what question to ask and cross-examinations of the performers are welcome.


Performed by Alicia Bella & Shah Motia
