Annabelle Dvir is an Israeli-Georgian choreographer, voice artist, live sound composer and dance performer, who researches alongside her developing women ensemble - dancers & musicians, the live art through the tension between sensation and perception, the heard and the seen. She creates extreme physical-vocal practices and examines new esthetics and interdisciplinary actions that merge between the worlds of reality and fantasy. She composes, in a musical-choreographic eye, the embodiment of live sound and the visual shapes of alternating soundscapes in order to transform human preconception, emotions and inner desires. Her stage works and practice center the “performance body” as an audial-sonoric and plastic procedures.
Annabelle earned her MA and BA with Dean’s honors from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and graduated The KELIM Center’s Choreography Program. In 2018 received the ImPulsTanz DanceWEB scholarship Vienna Austria, the Art Excellence Award of Holon Municipality and the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sports creative grant for outstanding emerging choreographers.
Annabelle’s work and practice are presented both nationally and abroad: Israel, Germany, Italy, Georgia, L.A, Lithuania, Spain, Croatia, France and more
Kevin O’Connor (he/him) I am a multidisciplinary artist (Gaelic, Sicilian heritage) whose work is rooted in community-engaged arts, somatics, ecology, and queer activism. I work as a choreographer, dancer, teacher, improviser, circus artist, writer, film producer, and installation artist between London Ontario, and the San Francisco Bay Area. My artistic practice engages improvisation, ritual, imagination, and collective score-making as tools for imagining emergent worlds. I am involved in a decade-long artistic collective, "Sweet Labour Arts" working across settler and Oneida Nation worlds in London Ontario. Over the last 15 years I have also worked with NAKA dance in Oakland, Skywatchers in the Bay Area, Oncogrrrls feminist art collective in Spain, Anandam in Toronto, and collaborated with Inuit hunter and designer Paulette Metuq on a project in Nunavut. Currently, I am excited to be collaborating with the following two different experimental dance works with many different inspiring artists: TRY (San Francisco/New York City) and All the Rage (Guelph). I hold a degree in ecology from the University of British Columbia, a diploma from the National Circus School of Montreal, an MFA in choreography, and a Ph.D. in performance studies from UC Davis. www.ecologicalbodying.com

Curator – Director – Creator - Facilitator
With a long academic and career history as an artist and curator, Joshua Poole works both nationally and internationally to create connectivity between people, places and art. For more than a decade, Joshua has immersed himself more deeply and purposely in the global arts community. He currently serves as the Assistant Director and Curator for the Station Museum of Contemporary Art in Houston, Texas, an exhibition forum/museum for local, national, and international artists, with an emphasis on fine arts that reflects the cultural diversity of Houston’s communities.
Building relationships and creating encounters with institutions and artists is foundational to Joshua’s vision as a curator. His curatorial eye and aesthetic are built through time spent alongside artists - in their studios visits witnessing their creative process and the creation of art. Joshua forges connections between and with artists from varied institutions, projects and programs, in order to advance their work and create intersectionality within the field of art.
A life-long practitioner and advocate of all mediums of art, Joshua Poole has championed the career path of hundreds of artists. He has initiated numerous projects and exhibitions that weave his passion for and practice of Art Activism including collaboration and production on Democracia’s ORDER, an opera presented in three acts that seeks to radically critique the conventions and injustices of capitalism.. Joshua’s unique background and perspective drives his responsiveness to and within the current arts environment/ecosystem.
With a felt responsibility to extend his vision, access and reach of art beyond his immediate community, Joshua co-founded Roza - Centre for International and Interdisciplinary Art and Cooperation in Krakow Poland in 2018. Housed in a historically relevant manor house near Krakow, an area richly steeped in culture and history, the Centre fosters an atmosphere of holistic learning, study and practice of art. Conceived as a “living laboratory” dedicated to creation and intersectionality, Roza serves to erase the boundary between artist and spectator, organically extending Joshua’s vision to create connectivity between people, places and art.
