Little Big Dance
Club Origami

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…
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 is a touring production programmed by The Montgomery as part of our Monty Makers strand of work, which presents high-quality, affordable children’s theatre shows.
