Mari Osanai was born in Aomori (north top of main Island in Japan), Japan. She was trained in Classical Ballet and Modern dance at an early age and later studied jazz dance, Tai Chi, and Noguchi Taiso. Noguchi Taiso and its philosophy and theory had a great influence on her creations. Her unique and complex movements are created interweaving these techniques as well as taking classes with Mr. Hironobu Oikawa. Mari Osanai's dance works have also been heavily influenced by an early exposure to Butoh in Japan in the 1980's and 90's.

Madelyn Sher is a movement-based artist born, raised, and based in New York City. Her choreographic work melds contemporary dance, Butoh, physical theater, and mime. She is an actor represented by Abrams Artists Agency, and dances with the Herbert H. Dance Company. She has danced in works by Vangeline Theater, RediDance, and Ni'ja Whitson. Madelyn holds a B.A. in Dance and Philosophy from the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY Lehman and is a graduate of the Drama department at LaGuardia Arts High School. She teaches creative movement at P.S. 42 in Chinatown.
