Rip, fold and
Shall we see what
we can make with a single square of paper?
As you scrunch the
paper, see how your imagination begins to dance…
Dive into the
magical world of Club Origami, an
immersive and interactive dance show inviting family audiences to create,
imagine and explore whole new ways of thinking, playing and moving. Dance,
fashion and live music meet the magic of origami to sweep us up on a spirited
and inspiring adventure in a land made purely of paper and play.
This show will include a 10 minutes 'stay and play' after the show
Club Origami is presented by Little Big Dance – a pioneering
national initiative creating new dance work for under fives and their families,
led by South East Dance in partnership with DanceEast, Take Art and Yorkshire
