Sossy Mechanics is a company that strives to communicate through our creations and performances in a way that is

so clear that people get what we’re saying;

so evocative that they become willing participants in imagining the worlds we create;

and so engaging that they want to see more, (and they want their friends to see it, too).

Sossy Mechanics is a theater and dance company that combines the “energetic and charismatic” forces of Brian Sostek and Megan McClellan two seasoned creators and performers who happened to meet one day in a dance company.  Their whimsical sensibilities, exacting standards and cinematic aesthetic have earned them an award-winning reputation for creating “clear, brilliant storytelling,” dances that “recall Fred and Ginger at their most playful,” and “magic out of just about nothing."

Transforming the stage together since 2000, the Mechanics have developed a devoted public following and garnered critical acclaim wherever they have performed, including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Edinburgh, Prague, London, Vancouver, Seattle, New York City and even Thunder Bay, Ontario.
