Sylvi and Antero Alli
Antero and Sylvi have been in artistic and creative collaboration since 1989 when they first met in Seattle WA. In 1996, they arrived in Berkeley CA to start Vertical Pool Productions as an intermedia arts group for their solo and joint projects, as well as, to collaborate with others in the deep talent pool of the S.F. Bay area.
Between 1975 and 2005, Antero wrote, directed, and produced a series of original theatre works. Since 1977, Antero has been developing a paratheatre medium combining techniques of physical theatre, dance, voice, and Zazen (documented in his book,"Towards an Archeology of the Soul" and two videos). In 1980, Antero wrote the songs for, and performed in, his Berkeley neopunk band, The Frozen Beauties. Between 1991-95, Antero was chief editor/publisher of Talking Raven Quarterly, a Seattle-based iconoclastic literary journal. Between 1992 and 2002, Antero curated the Nomad VideoFilm Festival, a popular west coast touring showcase of experimental short works. Since 1993, Antero has written and directed numerous underground movies (now available on dvd), which screen in limited runs in arthouse cinemas along the pacific coast. Antero is also the author of a handful of books and an astrologer. He is currently in production for his next movie, "The Book of Jane", a feminist drama.

After extensive training in classical piano, Sylvi turned to painting and between 1976-93, her art was shown in galleries in the U.S. and Europe. In 1989, she began her journey into ambient/industrial electronic music and in 1995, she started singing. These elements soon combined in the development of soundtracks for dance, theatre and cinema projects. Sylvi has scored the songs and music for most of Antero's films & theatre since 1989. In 1996, she designed and published "The Vertical Oracle" (a neo-Tarot deck) and starred in "Lily in Limbo", a 27-minute poetry film. Her music CDs include "Too Near the Ghosts", "Dream of the Blue Moth", "Under a Shipwrecked Moon", "A Hundred Birds", "Vessel" and "Flamingos". Sylvi has been a core member of ParaTheatrical ReSearch since 1998 and has acted in many of Antero's films. Sylvi teaches women's private singing lessons and conducts embodied voice workshops. She is sole proprieter of LunarMuse, featuring her own original hand-crafted jewelery.
