Vito has been WRITING and PERFORMING poetry for the best part of a decade. He draws inspiration from social interactions. From amazing poets to random stories he hears from lonely people in QUESTIONABLE bars. His ART is his life, thus he lives both in conjunction. LIFE & ART are inseparable that’s why he takes himself to any EMOTIONAL state he feels is necessary when writing, no matter where that path leads. Recently he has started writing PLAYS and SHORT films. Transferring his skills over to these formats opened a whole new world of expression and ARTISTIC INDULGENCE.
Watch this space for more of his material, ‘sure to make you feel,’ is his slogan.
Influences: “HOWL” By Allen Ginsberg, Stephen King, Stanley Kubrick.

Lisa has exhibited and contributed to a wide range of arts events and exhibitions including Folkestone Triennial, Lisbon Architecture Triennale, Cafe Oto, Resonance Fm, Framework Radio, Whitechapel Gallery, Speculum Artium and Whitstable Biennale.

BUBBLECAM is a playful exploration of online streaming and LIVE FEED possibilities. It is a partnership with Mike and Andie, a couple in Florida who set up the online bubble cam in their garden. It consists of an internet controlled bubble machine that can be activated and watched online. People from around the world visit the website to ‘blow bubbles’.
She partners with mike and Andie to create relays of this CAM, furthering the reach of this online request for bubbles. In each of the relay cams the audience are invited to participate in different ways, so as to explore the human impulse and reaction to this simple idea that has been captivating an online audience for over 10 years. Each relay cam explores what it is to be the live audience, the BUBBLE BLOWERS, the button pushers, those making anonymous demands through the internet and those affected by them.
For ONE OF US, the events guests will become the live audience, to discover how it feels to be watched.
INFLUENCES: Edgar Allan Poe, Billy Wilder, David Lynch, Punchdrunk, Film Noir
She is a ONEOFUS alum, having written and directed a short immersive play inspired by Elizabeth Fry and Ruth Ellis for ONEOFUS : WHITECHAPEL in 2012.
Her latest piece, DARLING, is an OPERA-THEATRE experience which invites audiences to help create the SOUNDSCAPE. It loosely uses the ghosts and ill-suited lovers of the 1959 horror film ‘HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL’ as a springboard for the story, and musically, the evocative, religious organ strains of FINZI’s choir music and unearthly harmonies of FAURE’S REQUIEM and ERIC WHITACRE.
She also has an MA in Writing for PERFORMANCE & PUBLICATION from the University of Leeds and was the Yorkshire editor Whatsonstage.com.
