- Origami by Dance Umbrella – 13th October – 6pm & 8.30pm
Artillery Square, RA
Dance Umbrella are touring “Origami” this autumn. It 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.
