Yin-Chi is a freelance dance artist, as well as a wushu practitioner based in Auckland. As a movement performer, Yin-Chi is passionate in exploring hybridised language between wushu and contemporary dance. Her recent works explore multi-disciplinary practices embracing photography, poetry, movement, design and sounds.

Jess Quaid is a freelance dance artist, currently based in Auckland. Her choreography is often based in story and combines physicality and objects with imagery techniques drawn from Tanztheatre and Body Weather. She has a particular interest in site-specific and improvised performance and is a regular participant in Vitamin S. She also enjoys playing around with styles, forms and collaborations. In 2019 she performed as part of Pocha Nostra’s NO MORE IDOLS in Riga, and took the collaborative work ‘Liminauts’ to the Prague Quadrennial.

Ivan Mršić is an interdisciplinary visual artist, percussionist, composer and improviser, based in Auckland. His long running practice builds on the foundations of the avant gardé music, performance and art. Part of his aural experimental practice explores the sonic potential of discarded everyday-objects. One of Mršić's primary fields of investigation, is improvised musical collaboration. In 2016 Mršić developed the project Kakokarangaphonia, a time scored orchestra of noise, for the Te Tuhi exhibition Share/Cheat/Unite. Ivan Mršić collaborated with many musicians and artists, keeping his practice experimental and chance based, always exploring, unpredictable nature of sound.

Kristian Larsen is an Auckland based artist working in choreography, contemporary dance, and sound via improvisation. Larsen's artistic interests are focused on live collaboration, sonic experimentation & spatialisation, naivete, acousmatic and electronic sound, technical skill coupled with non-comprehension, and the poetics of decay and delay in bodily movement.
