Ari Lazer: Storyteller, visual artist and wandering magician, Ari Lazer is well versed in a variety of mediums. As a playwright, Ari’s recent work has been with the Dusty Flowerpot Cabaret, crafting stories for their productions “The Valley of Ashes” and “The Listening Jar.” As a magician, he has created an array of magical tools that utilize sacred geometry to connect deeply with the patterns of creation.

Nile and others. She has toured across Canada and played at numerous Folk Festivals, as well as recording and appearing on a number of albums – the most recent of which, “Contraries,” was released January 2009 to warm reviews.
Elliot Vaughan: In various capacities – sound designer for plays, composer of a lot of Serious Classical Music, performing Schumann and Bach with dignity (feigned or genuine) or his own music without on the viola, stamping and growling rabidly before running in circles singing “HERO” in dance shows, etc, – Elliot Vaughan plays with sound.
Martin Reisle: A formidable composer in his own right, Martin may be best known for his work with Maria in the Shower – a four-piece voodoo-gypsy-barbershop-folk extravaganza. An enrapturing performer, impeccable player, and closet mad-scientist/animator/calligrapher/mystic, Martin’s work is in a category all its own.
