Lan Tung https://www.lantungmusic.com/
Artistic Director of Orchid Ensemble, Sound of Dragon Music Festival, and Proliferasian; erhu (Chinese violin) player & vocalist; composer & producer.
Lan Tung’s music often experiments with contradictions by taking culturally specific materials outside their context. Her works embody the rhythmic intricacy from Indian influence, the sense of breath/space from Chinese tradition, and many years of experience in interpreting contemporary Canadian compositions. Incorporating improvisation and graphic notations, Lan’s compositions and performances are released on numerous CDs, winning an International Independent Music Awards and multiple nominations by JUNO, Canadian Independent Music Awards, Canadian Folk Music Awards, and Western Canadian Music Awards.

Marina Hasselburg https://marinahasselberg.com/
Cellist Marina Hasselberg’s musical career led her from her birth country of Portugal across the world to Vancouver’s eclectic music scene. Starting as a chamber musician specializing in classical music, her passions have expanded to include baroque music, experimental music, and interdisciplinary works that cross genre boundaries.
Marina has played cello for various orchestras, chamber music ensembles, theatre and dance productions, and films. She serves as the principal cellist of the Vancouver Island Symphony, while also performing with groups and organizations such as Vancouver New Music, Early Music Vancouver, Sound of Dragon Ensemble, Turning Point Ensemble, Plastic Acid Orchestra, Redshift Music Society, Vancouver Pro Music, the Okanagan and Kamloops symphonies, and pop stars including Father John Misty, Michael Bublé, Rod Stewart, and Mariah Carey.

Olivia Shaffer http://www.oliviashaffer.ca/
Olivia Shaffer is a choreographer, performing artist, and movement teacher. She holds a BFA and a Liberal Arts Certificate from the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. For over a decade, Olivia has performed, taught, and created dance. Her practice is fed by contemporary dance, Contact Improvisation, and somatic movement practices.
Olivia is interested in creating a living, embodied work, rooted in structured improvisations. By using the mediums of movement and performance, she aims to interpret the human condition by harnessing emotions, probing paradox, and forming ephemeral yet penetrative bonds between audience and artist. Olivia considers movement as a metaphor for our ever-seeking nature while experiencing continuous loss. She is developing a piece about the mental deterioration of a loved one, which will premiere on November 2019.

Li Tung https://www.double12.ca/
An artist crossing many genres, Li Tung works in two- and three-dimensional arts including painting, visual and installation arts, photography, calligraphy, performing art, impromptu dance, stage design, as well as game and multimedia design and creative writing.
Li’s recent paintings reflect his thorough comprehension of surrealism and Pan-Asian arts. As a published novelist, Li is writing dialogues with images to tell stories and communicate with others.
