Lord and June: Max Lord and Sara June have been making performances together since 2006. As Lord and June, they have presented improvisational duets, site-sensitive durational performance works, and historically informed visual-sound installations, often in unique locations. Recent works include Peacock,  a commission by the Boston University Art Galleries for performance alongside the internationally acclaimed Hiroshima Panels by Japanese artists Iri and Toshi Maruki, and Heron, a movement sound work created to interact with Japanese Artist Fujiko Nakaya’s large-scale fog sculptures installed as part of her FOG x Flo exhibition in Boston’s Emerald Necklace. http://www.lordandjune.com/

William Gleason is the American author of two books about aikido, spirituality and kototama. He holds the rank of 7th dan in aikido and is the founder and head instructor of Shobu Aikido in Somerville, MA. Gleason teaches seminars worldwide.  http://www.shobu.org/

Carrie J. Preston is a writer, performer, and the Arvind and Chandon Nandlal Kilachand Professor of English and Gender Studies and Director of Kilachand Honors College at Boston University. Her works include the noh-inspired play Zahdi Dates and Poppies (world-premiere 2016) and Learning to Kneel: Noh, Modernism, and Journeys in Teaching (2016).
Casey Emmet Buckles:  Having started with writing in the later years at GHS, I moved onto digital filming in the past year.  My concepts are born in colors  which made writing a long process filled with self doubt.  The time and flow of visual/audio presentation has freed what had been restrained by constant writing re-edits.  The presence of mind and its awareness in environment is what I want to share with those who view my work.
