The workshop
Takeshi Matsumoto and Makiko Aoyama will lead a practical workshop offering creative and choreographic insights into Club Origami, a dance performance for under six years old and their families commissioned and produced by Little Big Dance. Club Origami uses no words, dance improvisation and children’s origami works to take the audience members to a journey that is filled with lots of paper. The creatives and dance performers, Makiko and Takeshi will facilitate the space for moving, listening, dancing, observing and discussion, inspired by Origami, a Japanese art of folding paper and performance making for children and young people. Please wear comfortable clothes. No formal dance training required.
