* HENRIK AESHNA is a visionary vandal hated by Blablaist theoreticians and all kinds of conservatives -, poet-performer, provocateur, unclassifiable multidisciplinary creator, editor, polyglot translator and voyager-explorer based in Montmartre-Paris.
Former nude model turned Rimbaudian anti-model/anti-prophet of SchizoPoP Manifesto, Aeshna is also engaged in a radical dialogue with the masters of disorder and ecstasy from faraway tribal cultures (especially after his many experiences with Ayahuasca in South America, years ago), with Experimental Cinema, Butoh, women writers, street art, long lost bohemias and radical underground avant-gardes, and whatever interesting, disturbing, taboo-defying, rule-breaking and magma-infused crosses his way (without attaching to any reproductions and clichés).
Poet-bomber-wild-child armed with a sharp dionysian syntax (incendiary pies with splashes of absurdity and humour noir thrown in defying all the crowns and clichés of our post-post-post-modern age), in 2008 he sold Van Gogh’s ear in minced meat packages displayed in a kiosk set up outside the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

* ANITA VOLK is a brazen clown exploring wetlands of ungratefulness, weirdness and nakedness, storming long waiting rooms to smear armchairs ornaments clocks and masks. She sings writes writhes breathes spits out her words and those of others. Inspired by the writings of Michaux, Bataille, Vian, Bachelard, Nietzsche, Novarina, Deleuze, Dostoyevsky, the Dada comets, Henry Miller, Anaïs Nin, Artaud, Joyce Mansour, Kerouac, Hesse and Butoh, the chansons of Fréhel, Nitta Jo, Yvette Guibert, Marie Dubas (CHANSONS TOXIQUES - 1907-1946), Léo Férré, Brel, Brassens, Bobby Lapointe, Vian and Gainsbourg, Anita’s universe is made up of the forces, rages, disarrays, beauties and hideousnesses of this world. Focusing her research on chant, dance and poetry, her aim is both to enter the secret realms of these languages and develop them through improvisation, thus achieving a spontaneity situated outside all disgusting logics and atavisms.

* SANDRA WILD is a whore of the present time, the President’s whore. She’s Margheritta, margheritte, Saint Rita (showing an incurable wound on her face), the saint of desperate and lost causes (staring at someone) she herself desperate. She’s called Mireille Havet, and she won’t ever eat your bread. Call her Sandra. Sandra Wild. Having just finished her 7-year philosophy studies Sandra Wild is now due to open a butcher’s shop-delicatessen in a children’s center so as to give the unemployed aged less than 10 years a chance to work. They will learn on site how to bone one another.
