I am a nobinary actor/director/performance artist/writer originally from Sydney, Australia who has been based in New York for the past two years; studying in the BFA Acting program at Pace School of Performing Arts. Currently located in Sydney, I primarily explore performance art though drag as the entity STARCHILD: a punkrock-glam-revolutionary-starlet, who has been sent to earth to unlock the STAR inside of all humankind. Nursed in the womb of Lady GaGa and birthed into the hands of Ziggy Stardust, Starchild was born to inspire, bind people together, spread raw queer power, and show that we are all, Starchild. 

Special Skills :
Actor, director, playwrite, poet, makeup artist, dancer (vogue), model performance drag artist, pianist, singer, stylist.

My name is Meadow Soleil Cloud (He/They) and I am currently an undergraduate student at The New School for my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Creative Technologies and performance with a minor in environmental science. I am a trans non-binary afro-latin interdisciplinary artist whose art is often a voice for my communities. I am advanced in adobe suite, and am comfortable with programs like OBS, After Effects and QLab. Recently, I started working as a Camera Operator/Sound Technician with Stylelikeu who is closing on almost half a million subscribers. I taught Fundamentals of Theater to a diverse group of high school students while serving in an apprenticeship for 3 years as the Associate to the Artistic Director at The School of Arts and Enterprise in Pomona, CA. The class culminated in a 2 week long production of Our Town which premiered at the Studio Theater.

Since I am always managing multiple projects, it’s important for me to keep a soothing energy in the spaces I work in. I am constantly fueled by the seamless connection between plants and other beings of life so my independent work is heavily involved around plants and environmentalism, while trying to maintain accessible resources to influence those who interact with my work.

Whether it be intersecting the realms of performance art and electronic dance music, innovating technologically driven theatrical spaces, or examining art making practices and principals of living through a unique lens of sacred ritual, spirituality, medicine, music, and nature; an ever-pervading motive in Storm Willow’s art/waking life, strives to innovate the exploration of unchartred waters of creation. Through centering their awareness on the practice of merging consciousness with energy,  whilst interrogating and surrendering to the nature of chaos and non-duality, Storm’s motivation lies in creating inclusive, collaborative, and alluring sensory spaces for creatives and creatures of the night to gather. 


Storm has been based in New York City over the last two years, and their performance record includes showcases at Grace Exhibition space, La MaMa, Judson, and Playwrights Horizons Downtown. Storm is currently pursuing their BFA through zoom at NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Hannah Hughes is a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist based in Los Angeles and New York City.

Hannah has been writing music and singing for as long as she can remember. Hughes began her artistic journey at 8 years old where she was classically trained in trumpet. As a teenager she picked up a guitar. It hasn’t
left her side since. Hughes composes music for films and is also a drummer and bassist. She often performs covers of different styles of music on her Instagram.

At 17, Hughes moved to New York City where she began performing at open mics, venues, and events. In 2019, she released her debut double EP’s ‘Temptation’ and ‘Sedation’. In 2020, she released her music video for her single ‘In the Dark With Me’. Hughes is currently based in Los Angeles, California. In December 2020, she released her new single ‘Shine’. Her new highly anticipated debut album ‘Simi’ will be released in 2021.

Alongside music, Hughes has modeled in a variety of films. Hannah was cast by actor and director Ed Burns as the featured guitarist in the new television series ‘Bridge and Tunnel’, airing in early 2021. Hughes was cast as the featured model in the music video for A.R.Ameen’s cover of Pink Sweats ‘Honesty’. A.R.Ameen is the son of Oscar award winning film score composer A.R.Rahman. Hughes also modeled in the rock band Pink Cocoon’s music video ‘It’s No Fun’, shot in downtown New York City.

Hughes is so proud to be a part of such a wonderful group of hardworking artists! She is so exited to share and collaborate with such an amazing team of visionaries.
