To Be Moved



Blarney Productions' To Be Moved is an absolute must-see work at the Edmonton Fringe. Directed by Braydon Dowler-Coltman, it debuts as a production achievement on every single level—delivering a riveting experience that is impossible to look away from. Matt Skoypk’s original music, like every other part of the show, works towards a refined theme. While the variety of presented genres serve each scene perfectly, every rhythm and chord progression pushes forward, always looking for a way to resolve. It grows and ebbs during the love story between the two-person cast. In a pas de deux that feels like it’s made for the present, Anna (Zoe Glassman) and Jeff (Kristian Stec) move naturally with each other in a dance that’s playfully repetitive, yet reinforced with intentional variation that can’t be ignored. Throughout the set, movement combines with a commanding use of imagery and design. A turntable spins a record of their encounters—in an impressive display of modern light design that matches the music. To Be Moved’s self-described “visual album” puts any digital visualizer to shame thanks to production designer Megan Koshka. It’s an incredibly focussed work that aims for the highest heights of theatrical accomplishment and reaches them with some of the finest engineering. Do not miss it.
