Salif Gueye. Artist.

French dancer Salif is never happier than being mid-dance and lost in the moment. From impromptu boogies down the city sidewalks to nailing that first synchronised routine with his friends, Salif loves to move.

Juliette Marsault. Artist.

Juliette is a strong women's rights activist who teaches self-confidence courses to women and members of the French LGBTQIA+ community. Juliette has always been a bit of a performer. She loves to dream up new characters. She can be easily distracted, too. A simple kitchen clean can often lead to an impromptu DJ session on the stove. The mundanity of DIY could lead her to grow some wings. True story.
