Maja Delak is a choreographer, performer and teacher. She studied contemporary dance at CNDC L'Esquisse in Angers, France. In 2006, she founded the Emanat Institute in order to affirm contemporary dance both through productions as well as a book programme (the Prehodi series) and education. Over the recent years particularly, her work has been marked by an intertwining of contemporary dance, intermedia and music art. She is a multiple-award winner, including the Best Performance Award at the Gibanica Festival (2013), the Golden Bird Award granted by the Liberal Academy (2013) and the Prešeren Fund Award for the performances Expensive Darlings, Serata Artistica Giovanile and Ways of Love as well as for her invaluable contribution to the affirmation of contemporary dance (2010).
