Dance, Drawing and #LivingLines17 Origami sees 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 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 Noroand Silvain Ohl and with music by Fred Costa, Origami is an outdoor event, suitable for everyone.
Be inspired by this astonishing heavy-metal transformation of our cityscape with complimentary drawing materials to inspire your #OrigamiChallenge creations!Some drawing materials supplied or bring your own!
