Bianca Marcia is a multimedia artist, with a dual focus in costuming and performance art.  Stemming from her philosophy of Arte Util, or useful art, she creates intense, interactive performances and explores issues such as Domestic Violence, War, and Clean Water.  Drawing on her theatre background, Bianca is able to create environments in which the lines between performer and audience are blurred, heightening the intensity of the experience and openness of the dialogue.  

 

Erik R. Montgomery finds his place in The WORK Collective as an audio technician and general WORKhorse.  Outside of WORK, Erik performs his unique brand of solo noise/performance art across the Midwest under the moniker Dr. Rhomboid Goatcabin.  He is also the founder of The Glass Swamp Sound Collective, a collaborator in The Commotion Collective, and has performed in the Nakatani Gong Orchestra.

 

Gary Christopher is a behind the scenes political operative. Like a cat hiding, watching, calculating; The Keeper of the Lanterns.
