The name of the piece, "why so curious?" is a phrase that is meant to evoke an emotional state, rather than describe a specific action. It was chosen because it is plain English but used in an uncommon way, which mirrors the slightly off-balance feeling and unusual and ominous setting in which the dancer finds himself.

This work features new music by composer Miles Mosley funded by Milan Vetter and was made possible by the commission of Carolynn Dilworth, the Junior Board of Elisa Monte Dance through their New Choreographers Fund, and a space grant by Steffi Nossen School of Dance.
