Satchie Noro & Silvain Ohl
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 slowly unfurls, creating a geometric performance space where the 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 a pat of.
Created by Paris based Satchie Noro and Silvain Ohl and with music by Fred Costa, Origami is an outdoor event, suitabkle for everyone, which takes place in five locations including the Queen’s Gardens in Croydon. Join us for a heavy-metal transformation of our cityscape.
Origami is part of the Dance Umbrella 2017 Festival. The events are taking place all across London from 11-28 October 2017. Please visit the Dance Umbrella website for details.
