"World’s largest animatronic performance" – The Crane Dance at Resorts World Sentosa (video)

Designed by Emmy Award winner Jeremy Railton, Crane Dance is the spectacular new attraction at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore. The crane is recognized as a universal symbol of longevity, abundance and good luck. Crane Dance celebrates these magnificent birds with an animatronic performance that references the traditional Crane movements in a jubilant dance — a sweet and magical love story inspired by an archetypal myth found in the folk lore of many cultures: the power of love to infuse life into an inanimate form. A defining feature of Crane Dance is its imposing scale: at full extension the cranes are as tall as a 10-story building, making them the world’s largest animatronics. Designer Jeremy Railton’s company is Entertainment Design Co. Also on the team: Bob Chambers & Edward Marks with It’s Alive Co.
