MACHiNENOiSY’s Law of Proximity
Law of Proximity is a performance project that brings together, award winning sound artist, Stefan Smulovitz, MACHiNENOiSY’s co creators Brett and Daelik and queer youth to interact around the themes of intimacy, proximity and identity. Delia
MACHiNENOiSY directors are working together with, professional dancers Chris Wright and Jennifer McLeish Lewis to train up to 8 gay, lesbian, bi sexual and transgender youth in the artistic practices of contact improvisation, story telling and sound technology.
Law of Proximity engages Vancouver’s young and developing Queer, Gay, Lesbian and Transgendered community in an exciting and informative physical dialogue on, performance, art, identity and communication. Law of Proximity highlights MACHiNENOiSY distinct perspective on dance, and new media, and extends the points of intersection between the gay and lesbian perspective and our heterosexually dominant society.
