Paola Bascón is a multidisciplinary artist working between Berlin and La Paz. She holds an M.A. in design, media art and media philosophy from the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design. She is interested in the relationships between poetic, ritual and handcraft practices and how they work as retainers of personal and collective memory and conceive the body as a territory of resistance.

Sophie Guisset is a Belgian dance maker and performer, born in Tournai in 1987. After completing her education as an actress at the Royal Conservatory of Mons (BE), she further developed her physicality and performative expression in the Dance Intensive Program at Tanzfabrik Berlin. In her performance practice she looks at the body as a tool for perseverance and a source of pleasure and erotism. She's exploring the boundaries between the body as a machine and the body as an erotic vehicle and researches performative tactics to shift between these two functions. Currently she is based in Berlin where she works as a maker, performer and as a tour guide.
