Nathan Walker is an artist and writer from West Cumbria, UK. Nathan works across and between performance art and poetry, exploring both the body and the page as sites for vocal exploration and the manipulation of sound and speech. Nathan has developed his own vocal techniques of making non-linguistic marks and illegible writing audible. Nathan’s performances often take place over extended durations, sometimes several hours, during which time they construct spaces of intense listening and attention.
Between 2009 and 2019 Nathan co-founded and curated the arts organisation Oui Performance with artist Victoria Gray. Together they presented a series of performance art events in York, North Yorkshire programming over 50 artists to produce new performance works.
Nathan is Senior Lecturer of time-based practices in Fine Art & Photography at York St John University.
Felix Roadkill is a performance artist.
He was born in 1989 in Bautzen and studied Cultural Studies and Aesthetic Practice in Hildesheim. After working at theaters and museums in Dresden, San Francisco and Berlin, Felix Roadkill now lives and works as a mortician in Vienna. His performances, mostly solo works testing physical limits, are often drawn from his interest in dealing with dying and murder – and from the conflicted area between private mourning and public commemoration.
