Origami

Origami at GDIF

Inspired by ancestral Japanese origami techniques, Origami turns a 40 foot container into a shifting performance space. Satchie Noro slowly evolves on the mechanical structure as it folds up from triangle to square and rectangle. Origami is a duet between a machine and a dancer, an industrial romance in which a symbol of globalisation, a container, embraces the fragile scale of the human body.

Satchie Noro and Silvain Ohl connect dance, moving architecture and landscape through a stunningly visual and deeply poetic experience.
