Company Profile

MACHiNENOiSY is a contemporary dance company that fosters the research and creation of performances which transcend traditional notions of dance and theatre. Artistic Directors Delia Brett and Daelik have a long and unique history of working together as dancers, teachers and creators both in North America and Europe. They have a shared interest in theatre, art and with the post-modern artistic discipline, Contact Improvisation and its auxiliary practices. They are two of the leading dancer/creators of this art form in Canada, having spent several years developing under the mentorship of Peter Bingham, Canada’s premier contact dance choreographer. MACHiNENOiSY actively strives to collaborate with other artistic mediums and with the international dance community. Their multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach to dance making has democratized their creation process. They have grown into skilled adaptors of method, always serving the specific conditions of each project. They see dance as an art form capable of merging the spiritual with the theatrical, the sensual with the conceptual. Their unique approach has marked them as innovators and courageous rule breakers. MACHiNENOiSY’s work has been presented throughout Vancouver and Canada and has toured to Germany, Austria, Belgium, France, Greece, and the US.
