Breaking the rules, the patriarchy and the time/space continuum. A search for multiple feminist futurisms while reaching for outer space. A gesture to the impossible. An ode to the search for utopia. A science fiction/science fact/fantasy futurisms/dubstep mashup. Or just some moves in the night. Working on My Night Moves is the latest live art work by award-winning artists Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan, some of the brains behind previous Fringe hits Power Ballad (2017) and If There's Not Dancing at the Revolution, I'm Not Coming (2016).

The Brexit of the Fringe, you just don’t want tae see it happen.

It doesnae break the rules, the patriarchy, or the time-continuum. It only breaks your patience and a lot of tin foil which is destined for landfill, and that’s exactly where this show should be.

If the future of feminism is watching someone hang chairs in the near dark or arrange lighting that should have been done before the show started then, like this show, it’s pretty pointless.

Worst show I’ve seen. Avoid.

A deconstructed Wizard of Oz, a homage to 50 years since the first moon walk, a lesson in how to incorporate trainers with lit soles (really cool) into a contemporary dance piece without distracting from the serious intent? Working on my Night Moves can be whatever you, the observer, wants...

This is a unique and original experience. That this art installation will change and alter. That somehow the space is transformed, gravity defied.

The Skinny (4/5 stars) 95 days ago

Zanetti Productions’ newest piece begins in the hallway. Nisha Madhan introduces us to a feminist exploration of physicality and space, as well as warning us to beware of the large objects that will surround us (and may come towards us) when we enter the room. We spend the first part...

Fest (4/5 stars) 98 days ago

Working on my Night Moves is a search for multiple feminist futurisms, breaking down the time/space continuum. It starts with the audience standing, performer Julia Croft obscured behind a star-covered curtain. When she pulls the curtain down the set is largely in darkness with Croft manipulating lights throughout the performance....
