CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

Origami Soundscapes/The Crane

Origami Soundscapes/The CraneT02103125125
Origami and music. A multi-media opera installation. Verity Lane?s two-part project draws on her 10 years' experience of living in Japan, exploring classical Japanese traditions with a uniquely avant-garde twist. A brand-new performance project with music, stories and concept by Verity Lane, Origami Soundscapes: Flower, Bird, Wind & Moon explores ancient symbolism and Japanese birdsong, featuring a large-scale origami performance by Coco Sato, percussion, shakuhachi and storytelling. The Crane reimagines a Japanese folk story about a magical crane that takes human form, set around Hokkaido's Otowa Bridge. This mystical opera installation explores traditional Japanese aesthetics through a blend of Noh theatre conventions, traditional and contemporary dance, avant-garde music and animation.
