Marc Zegans is a poet, playwright and author. His current work
explores waking dreams and the experience of human fragility in the
post-industrial landscape. His spoken word Album Night Work was
released by Philistine Records in August 2007. In February 2007 Marc
premiered a performance piece entitled Women, Waking, Danger: An
Experiment in Combination with multi-media artist Aki Onda. He also
recently completed the manuscript for Pillow Talk: A Collection of
Erotic Haiku to be released by G-Spot press. Presently, Marc is
completing a book of poems entitled Danger and Abandon. In 2005 he
began the "Question Book Project" which circulates hand-made books
throughout the world inviting individuals to add an ever-growing web
of questions to their pages. Noted graphic artist and foam-board
engineer, Eric Edelman is developing nesting structures for the
question books, so that they may grow in physical depth and complexity
as they expand in content. Marc's poetry appeared in broadside as part
of "The Art of Self and Recovery" a 2007 exhibition in Great
Barrington Massachusetts sponsored by the Elizabeth Freeman Center.
His play Mum and Shah was the Boston Globe "Pick of the Week."

Edwin Torres, from New York City, is a bilingualist rooted in the
languages of both sight and sound. His performances intermingle the
textures of poetry, vocal and physical improvisation and visual
theater. His books include "The PoPedology Of An Ambient Language"
(Atelos books), "In The Function Of External Circumstances" (Spuyten
Duyvil Press) and "The All-Union Day Of The Shock Worker" (Roof
Books). His debut CD "Holy Kid" (Kill Rock Stars) was included in The
Whitney Museum Of American Art's exhibition, The Last American
Century. He has taught at Naropa University's Summer Writing program,
