PRESENTED WITH ANVIL CENTRE

Inspired by world-renowned Finnish theorist and architect Juhani Pallasmaa’s writings on architecture and the sensing body, MACHiNENOiSY’s most ambitious work to date is a site-specific, 360-degree contemporary dance performance tailored specifically for New Westminster’s iconic Anvil Centre. This adventurous piece brings together architecture; sound, visual and lighting design; and a team of extraordinary dancers from both Canada and Finland—all to stunning effect.

[A]lways adventurous and ever-experimenting… —Peter Dickinson, Performance, Place, and Politics

Audience members accompany the artists as the performance moves between various locations throughout the Centre. As the piece unfolds, it evolves into an interplay between the architecture and one’s embodied perception of it. The sensorial, social and political aspects of the space intermingle to redefine the performers, the audience and the place itself. The result is a revelatory dance experience—immersive, radical and utterly unique.
