Helen Paris and Leslie Hill are London-based artists working in performance, video and digital arts, known for their edgy, humorous interrogations of contemporary culture and politics. Their company, curious, was formed in 1996 and has been supported by institutions such as the Arts Council of England, the National Endowment for the Arts (USA), the National Center for Biological Sciences, India and the Australia Council. They recently received a Franklin Furnace commission to make three short films in New York in 2004. The company's work has been exhibited internationally and featured in a wide variety of publications. Their book, Guerilla Performance and Multimedia, was published by Continuum in 2001. Lois Weaver has been a performer, director, and writer with the Split Britches Company since 1980. She is currently developing solo work and a guerilla video performance commissioned by Franklin Furnace. She teaches at Queen Mary, University of London, where she is involved in STAGING HUMAN RIGHTS, a project using performance to explore issues of human rights in women's prisons in Brazil and the U.K.
