ALOK is a gender non-conforming writer and performance artist. Their eclectic style and poetic challenge to the gender binary have been internationally renowned. Alok was recently the youngest recipient of the prestigious Live Works Performance Act Award granted to ten performance artists across the world. In 2017 they released their inaugural poetry chapbook FEMME IN PUBLIC.

Travis Alabanza is a performer, writer and theatre maker. In the last two years they have been noted by numerous publications, such as ARTSY, ID AND MOBO _AWARDS, as one of the most prominent emerging queer artistic voices, and also listed in OUT as an influential queer figure. In 2016/17 they became an artist in residence at the Tate workshop programme, starred in Scottee's theatre production 'putting words in your mouth' and the Royal Exchange show Jubilee, performed in venues such as V&A, Tate, ICA, the Roundhouse and Barbican — and had their work featured in the guardian, BBC, Huck magazine and more. Known for increasingly paving much of the UK conversation around trans politics, Alabanza has became a staple part of the London queer scene and further afield. Their debut poetry book 'Before I step Outside (you love me)' has been shipped to over 19 countries world wide and listed as one of the top trans literary books of 2017.

marikiscrycrycry is a shy, ambivalent, black femme choreographer based in London, UK working with an expansive choreographic proposition. Their work is motorising other/ulterior possibilities, spaces, structures, and ontologies for my body and its humanistic/post-humanistic hopes and engagements. They perform under the alias marikiscrycrycry.
