Colombian artist Leonel Vasquez holds a Masters of visual and plastic arts from the National University of Colombia, where he developed a proposal for sound dimension, through sculptures, installations, videos and facts, also exploring the states of tension between spaces, architectures, bodies and voices as main components of reflection of his work.

After dancing for several leading choreographers and companies in Vancouver, Sarah Williams moved to Montreal to join La La La Human Steps in 1990. Since then we have seen her on stage, in art galleries and in film, performing in the works of prominent directors and choreographers like Robert Lepage, Jean Pierre Perreault, Martin Faucher, Léa Pool, Claude Fournier, and Nelson Henricks. Sarah has been a guest artist in Halifax and back in Vancouver with The Holy Body Tattoo and Joe Ink and in Montreal with George Stamos and Louise Bédard Danse.
