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…

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.

Stay and Play

After the show, join us for free front of house craft activities.
