Who was Erika Weisz? Why has she been forgotten? A pioneer of illusionism, she performed on North America’s greatest theatre stages during the 20s under the stage name of “The White Lady,” before mysteriously disappearing in 1933. Through a mysterious performance revealing the backstage of a show that never happened, the Pourquoi jamais group now endeavours to revive this important figure in the history of illusionism.

Pourquoi jamais is a group that was founded in autumn 2008. It is comprised of artists, amateurs and professionals who hail from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.
