Heather Fuller lives in Fullerton, Baltimore, of course, with a one-eyed dog and a band of feral cats (of course).
The NYT called her third book (Startle Response) "jagged and terrific"; Publisher's Weekly described her second book (Dovecote) as "an empowering place to roost";
and in Witz, William Marsh cast work from her first book (perhaps this is a rescue fantasy) as "framed moments of resistance, whose language consistently threatens to dissolve or burst the frame."
Fuller, a child of North Carolina, landed in Baltimore by way of D.C., where she ran with the avant-garde kids for more than a decade, collaborating on poetry/visual arts projects.
She's honored to be one of five poets on the Women in the Avant Garde CD from Baltimore's Narrow House.

theremin/electronics Playboy Eric Franklin and banjoist and enchanted warbler Liz Downing.
His UK release "Colors" will be launched with the next space shuttle.

OMOO OMOO

LA GROSSE COMMISSION


Written, produced and directed
by DICK TURNER

 
Associate producers : Arnaud Caquelard and Frédéric Moulin
Baltimorean Dick Turner now lives in Paris . Over the years, he assisted his brother Henry Turner on several films,
"Strangers", "Trashmonster", "Wilber Whateley's Sex Drive", "Gun to My Head/Gun to Your Head", and "Pym".
"La Grosse Commission" is his directing debut.
Dick Turner has presented many of his projects at The 14Karet Cabaret such as the Smile Machime 'Cerebration'
and solo and musical performances. In Paris, in addition to his work as a film maker, he is a painter,
has produced plays and is the lead singer and composer for "Traditional Monsters".
He just finished a tour of France as the opening band for Herman Dune.
 The expression "La Grosse Commission" literally translated means "The Big Job" it is the French equivalent of the English expression "Number Two".
The film was inspired by the references to excrement found in the writings of Thomas Mann, Joyce, Céline, Rabelais, Artaud, Freud and Norman O. Brown. Essentailly the film is an interrogation on the source of the
continual pressure that life exerts on us and how one person decides to deal with it.
La Grosse Commission (Shit Happens) is a biologic-philosophical comedy.
In French with English subtitles
Songs by Dick Turner and Traditional Monsters
With Frédéric Moulin, David Noir, Valérie Thoumire, Richard Bartolini, Faustine Tournan, Zelda Rittner Paul-Alexandre Dubois,
Matthieu Lourdel, Emmanuel Avena, Pauline Gervereau, Jean-Pierre Cormarie, Nicolas Sornaga and Valentine Carette.




SYSTEM NUMLOCK
Performance by RYAN DUNNE and NEVER BIRD THEATRE
The System Numlock operates on simple voice commands provided which are spoken or shouted at the performers to make them do certain things, walk around, change emotions, speak, react, run away etc.
Loosely based on keyboard commands for certain video games this performance allows the audience to have control over how the act turns out and to have fun learning what the commands mean. 
This performance was created to flesh out all the complexities that come from an age growing up in the virtual realm controlling other "people" to do your bidding and how it translates into real life.
Never Bird Theatre will perform an improv movement/dance that interacts with Ryan Dunne's System Numlock Performance. Never Bird is a group of
artists, musicians, performers and aerialists who work with the ideas of improvisation in many different disciplines.

NANCY ANDREWS
Behind the Eyes are The Ears
Film by Nancy Andrews
Soundtrack Nancy Andrews and Zach Soares
This mix of animation, found footage, and live action footage follows the research of Dr. Sheri Myes and her revolutionary attempts to expand our perceptions and consciousness. The filmmaker began the project by writing a song cycle, and then imagery was developed through a series of drawings. The film is influenced by classic “mad scientist” horror films like “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” and “The Man with the X-ray Eyes”. !


ANDREW ZUKERMAN

Fleshtone Aura - A collage of sound fragments and synthesized nuances played on tapes, through tapes and on top/ about/ who is tapes.

EXTREME ANIMALS
Jacob Ciocci and David Wightman present short performances for video and live performers as well as perform live music soundtracks to a variety of their original video works. The short performance works range from absurd inspirational lectures to musings on contemporary internet culture to introspective meditations on metal guitar shredding technique, all couched within a lo-fi, intentionally awkward ‘performance art’ aesthetic.


EVE HANAN
In Eva/Aves, Eve Hanan creates an intimate dance setting in which one woman, Eva, corresponds with her absent husband in long, crowded letters sent over 20 years and two world wars. Messenger pigeons pass notes, twitch, flap, swarm, home, scavenge, and initiate Eva’s avian transformation into their flock. Sound design by Bob Hoehn.

MARTHA COLBURN

Martha Colburn‘s handcrafted animations explode with an energy, concentration and a rapid-fire torrent of ideas that push the medium to its very edges. Colburn’s past works have savagely lampooned pop culture, consumerism,and middle-class attitudes to delirious fantasies, but her most recent films bring more tragic dimensions to bear by focusing on war and icons of American history.

Always startling in her use of disparate techniques and free association, Martha Colburn creates films unlike any other, and the screening spans 16 years of filmmaking with 16 films, including Dolls vs. Dictators (2010), Join the Freedom Force (2009), Myth Labs (2008), Triumph of the Wild (2008), Skelehellavision(2001), Spiders In Love: An Arachnogasmic Musical (2000), and Evil of Dracula (1997), among others. Her work has been shown at the Centre Pompidou, The Kitchen, the Whitney Museum, PS 1, MoMA, and numerous major international film festivals.

POSSIBILITARIAN PUPPET THEATER
There is a farm deep the mountains of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, where a paper mache cathedral houses Insurrection masses, and a sourdough Baker and Philosopher makes a living by corrupting capitalist youth and making them unfit for the jobs they are manufactured to perform.

In Cleveland, OH, a cultural enterprise infected with this Sourdough Philosophy is determined to continue testing out this unreasonable, childish, idiotic practice called puppetry on the hum-drum, business-as-usual, sterilized, money-worshipping, techno-dazed world.

Precisely due to the obvious impossibility of this enterprise they call themselves the Possibilitarian Puppet Theater. Possibilitarians say: “Yes we embrace possibility and celebrate it in the form of puppetry, which includes the arts in all forms: Music, Sculpture, Painting, Dance, Poetry, Performing, and even advanced cardboard and garbage engineering technology.”
