Ami YAMASAKI is a vocalist and cross-media artist from Tokyo. Yamasaki creates installations, performance pieces and directs films. With primal vocals and movement, she explores the possibilities of a deeper understanding towards the mechanism of the world. Now she is in NYC till the end of January 2018 for artist in residence program supported by Asian Cultural Council.
Lime Rickey International is the “alter ego” of Leyya Mona Tawil; an artist working with voice, sound and performance practices. Leyya is a Syrian-Palestinian-American, engaged in the world as such. Her articulation of Arab Experimentalism embeds political sub-narratives and cultural confusions into the performance fabric. Likewise, the work of Lime Rickey International is built under the influence of Arabic maqam and dabke. Leyya’s work has been presented in 16 countries and throughout the states. She has worked with violinist Mike Khoury for 11 years and has collaborated with many, including Jason Lescalleet, Sarah Hennies, Ava Mendoza, Hilary Jeffery, Julia Reidy, Mike Guarino and Dominic Cramp. Leyya is the director of ELIXIR / TAC – a venue for experimental arts in Oakland-CA.
