GDIF 2019 | London’s free, annual outdoor performing arts festival | Dates to be announced

Presented By Dance Umbrella


13 October 2017

Type: Dance


Origami saw the unlikely pairing of a monumental shipping container and a gravity-defying dancer.

Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, this 40 minute, free performance was a breath-holding spectacle where the container gently unfurled, creating a geometric performance space where dancer Satchie Noro dangled from its sharp corners and glided on its vertiginous edges. The container, in continuous movement, oblivious to the mesmerising duet that it was part of.

Created by Paris-based Satchie Noro and Silvain Ohl and with music by Fred Costa, Origami was an outdoor event, suitable for everyone, which took place in five locations along the Thames.
