Origami is a striking performance art piece and sculpture that combines acrobatics with a modified shipping container.
A container, familiar from the global transport industry, is cut into unusual segments and unfolds before your eyes into something resembling a paper origami shape. As if hatched out of a gigantic steel egg, from inside emerges performance artist Satchie Noro – who proceeds to contort herself into a succession of poses and shapes as the entire structure morphs and unfolds. Balancing on tightropes, trapezes and specially modified foot-and handholds, and swinging an axe around her head, Noro’s precarious aerial choreography will leave you holding your breath.
