“At the same time it’s a choreographic work, a space, architecture, a sculpture and a monumental machine – matter in motion.”
Reg’Arts Magazine

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

Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding, this 35 minute, free performance is a breath-holding 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.    

Created by Paris-based Satchie Noro and Silvain Ohl with music by Fred Costa, Origami is an outdoor event, suitable for everyone, which takes places in five locations along the Thames. Join us for an astonishing heavy-metal transformation of our cityscape.
