Club Origami

Commissioned and produced  by Little Big Dance


Rip, fold and scrumple! 

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…

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. 


People dance in paper, throwing it joyfully into the air


Club Origami is commissioned and produced  by Little Big Dance – a pioneering national initiative creating new dance work for children aged five and under, led by South East Dance in partnership with DanceEast, Take Art and Yorkshire Dance and funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council England, co-commissioned by Birmingham Hippodrome, Dance Umbrella, Strike-a-light and The Spark Arts for Children. 

Ripping fun for under-fives, who will be mesmerised
