Muted Crane Productions presents 'The 'I' Test' at BATS

Muted Crane Productions... 'The 'I' Test' at BATS, Opening 24th Feb 6:30 pm

Anna, Dani, Emma are Muted Crane Productions; a trio of emerging dance makers forging their way into the choreographic landscape with The ‘I’ Test. This dance theatre work is to be premiered in the New Zealand Fringe Festival at BATS theatre 24th-28th February and will be showcased in Dunedin at the Fortune Theatre 13th-15th March.

The ‘I’ Test
I see everything so clearly now.

Allow your perspective to be shattered. We create a world of ice, sweat and tears… then let it melt to nothing. Everything in this show could be wrong.

The work reveals five dancers weaving threads of raw physicality through a fabric of original sound and spatial design. Stacked ice panels sculpt the space, melting, abandoned, washed clean. You will be taken through a constant flux of questioning and absorption. Be a sponge.

Anna Flaherty, Danielle Lindsay and Emma Coppersmith are Wellington-based freelance contemporary dancers. They have worked with many and myriad projects and companies, such as Footnote Dance, Java Dance Company, Rifleman Productions, Bipeds Productions, Kowhiti Dance Festival and the World of Wearableart Awards Show.The trio performed for the first time together in ‘Feet of Clay’ choreographed by Livia McPhedran.

‘The dancers [Anna, Emma & Danielle] are all strong, and complement one another's physicality beautifully...’ ‘Feet of Clay’ reviewed by Sam Trubridge.

The original soundtrack is devised by Rowan Pierce (The Glass Vaults), and spatial design by Rose McKie.

As a company they completed a Toi Pōneke Dance Residency (Pilot), sharing the space with Java Dance Company and Bipeds Productions whilst working on the initial development for ‘The ‘I’ Test’. This project has also been supported by Creative New Zealand, Wellington City Council Creative Communities Scheme, The New Zealand Fringe Festival, Dunedin Fringe, Festival, DANZ, Toi Poneke, Flux Productions and Sarah Burton Photography.

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
