plaything is a vividly imaginative solo created and performed by MACHiNENOiSY’s Co-Artistic Director, Delia Brett, in collaboration with puppeteer Tamara Unroe, animator Jay White, painter, designer Jordan Bent, composer Chris Kelly and Delia’s son, Beckett.

Inspired by the contrasts of motherhood, and violent child’s play, the work employs MACHiNENOiSY’s multilayered approach to performance to create a dreamlike world where beauty emerges from the mundane, and the subversive topples the sublime.
