Eta Dahlia is a Russian poet and filmmaker based in London. His work combines minimalist Russian poetry with a range of other audio-visual media. He works with spoken word, images, colours and music, integrating these elements into inseparable rhythmic and rhyming compositions to create coherent and complete multimedia poetic pieces. One of his goals is to strive to achieve a universal type of a poem, where the understanding and appreciation of the piece is not limited to its original language.

Iris Colomb is an artist, poet, and translator based in London. Her work has been exhibited in the UK, France and Ukraine, her poems have been published in Tentacular, Zarf, Pocket Litter, and Datableed, and her co-translation (with Elliot Koubis) of The Stories and Adventures of the Baron d’Ormesan, a series of short stories by Apollinaire, came out in 2017. Iris has been resident artist and poet at the Centre For Recent Drawing, she is now the art Editor of Haverthorn magazine.
