Monique van Deursen
is the front lady and singer of the folk band Cesair. She studied Celtic languages and Culture at the Utrecht University,
and thus is a mastermind as it comes to finding historical texts and cultural knowledge,
which is often used as a starting point for our music compositions/soundscapes,
sculptures and performances.
Jessica van Deursen
is a fine-artist and performance artist. She studied fine-arts at the Willem de Kooning academy in Rotterdam,
and got her Masters degree at Codarts where she explored performance art and interdisciplinairy art.
That makes her a concept designer and the one to fiddle on all sculptures, decor, videos etc.
