On 3rd October 2015, Crane Dance Bristol, choreographed by Laura Kriefman as part of the WIRED Magazine/ The Space Fellowship (Arts Council and BBC partnership) welcomed a live audience of over 10,000 people who saw three cranes come to life in an exquisitely-lit and choreographed routine, perfectly timed to music.

In addition to the live audience in Bristol, the event reached an audience of 4 million online, without any live streaming, or national press advertising. You can watch a short video of it here: https://vimeo.com/142017416

Three of Bristol's iconic cranes outside M-Shed come to life in a one-off spectacular performance. This stunning collaboration blends lights, live music from RSVP Bhangra band, row boats, choirs and choreographed synchronised cranes in a 40 minute show that took place on the water next to Arnolfini as twilight descended on the city.  

This piece has been devised and choreographed by Laura Kriefman as part of the inaugural WIRED Magazine/ The Space Creative Fellowship, and was lit by award winning lighitng designers Howard Eaton and Emma Chapman. It was a collaboration between MShed, RSVP, The Balmoral, Bristol Gig Club, Bristol Channel Social Rowers and supported by the Watershed.
