This international collective whirls together new music, movement and imagery is an intermedial performance on history's endless rotation.

Everywhen orbits around two sides of life — the personal and the political.

A woman as loving mother who also promotes murder and slavery; a loving couple involved in the propaganda of a perverse ideology; kids that give a fascist salute as if in play.

Images of everyday families, mums and dads with their children, tiny groups of people, close to each other, face to face with the threat of history repeating itself.

Our memories often surface suddenly, changed, idealized, and sometimes they even erase themselves spontaneously. By leaving out key events and rewriting history a barrier is built between the new generation and older people, and this is makes it too easy for history to repeat itself.
