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.
