The show is performed and created by Molly Chanoff, Rose Calucchia, Sarah Dey Hirshan, Calia Marshall, Laura Montgomery Sarah East Johnson, Lollo Romanski, Allison Schnur,. Visual and sound collaborators include Nancy Brooks Brody, DJ Tikka Masala, Alison May, Jocelyn Davis, Wayne Schrengohst and Gretchen Hildebran.
