About the Artists

Since her arrival to NYC, Hungarian-born jazz vocalist Nikolett Pankovits has forged a singular body of music, grounded in the Old World but illuminated by the cultural mélange of the Americas. Pankovits’ music is an act of alchemy by a singer with an emotionally charged sound and story unlike anyone else on the today’s jazz scene.

After studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Adam Boncz was accepted to the world-renowned Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute in New York. As an actor, he has appeared in the Off-Broadway play Neither Heaven nor Earth produced by Poliglot Theater, Michael Weller's Moonchildren at the West End Theater and New Stage Theatre Company's Jollification/Mortification at the world famous La Mama ETC. In 2014 he founded SceneHouse Productions which produced the world premiere of Fatelessness based on the novel of Nobel Prize winner Imre Kertész.
