Dispense everything you thought you knew about the delicate and intricate Japanese art of paper folding. In this 35-minute riverside performance, an unwieldy and gargantuan white shipping container plays the role of a sheet of paper, its sharp corners and vertiginous edges constantly in motion as a gravity-defying dancer flies, cartwheels and tiptoes her way around the unfurling, ever-changing space it creates.

Fred Costa’s shipyard-inspired soundtrack lends an air of menace to what is already a truly breath holding spectacle, that’s been described as equal parts choreography, architecture, sculpture and mechanical design. Just turn up and witness the spectacle.
