Part of Eltham Unpacked and Dancing City
Duration: c. 40 minutes
- Take me to:
Origami sees the unlikely pairing of a monumental shipping container and a gravity-defying dancer.
Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, this is a ‘hold your breath’ spectacle where the container gently unfurls, creating a geometric performance space where dancer Satchie Noro dangles from its sharp corners and glides on its vertiginous edges. The container is in continuous movement, oblivious to the mesmerising duet that it is part of.
Presented as part of Eltham Unpacked, 28-30 June. GDIF’s programme of outdoor performance in Eltham town centre.
28-29 June, 2pm & 7.30pm
