The ‘I’ Test by Muted Crane Productions is now only one week from premiering at BATS Theatre on Monday the 24th of February. The company is hard at work in the studio for the last week of rehearsals!

James Wasmer, a third year student at the New Zealand School of Dance is seconding to our project and Anna Flaherty, Danielle Lindsay and Emma Coppersmith have been hard at work behind the scenes and are now jumping in their shoes to get this work to the stage!

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. You will be taken through a constant flux of questioning and absorption. Be a sponge.

Anna Flaherty, Danielle Lindsay and Emma Coppersmith are a trio of emerging dance makers forging their way into the choreographic landscape with The ‘I’ Test. They are Wellington-based freelance contemporary dancers and 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.

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 and Sarah Burton Photography.
