CULTUREMART 2019: Paper Room Laura Peterson Choreography

About the show

We only know part of what is happening in any situation, especially now. Deception, half-truths, lies are expected every time we see the news. In Paper Room, viewers are invited to consider how much of what we see is “true” or “real”, and how we fill in the gaps. Using origami paper-folding techniques to create a dynamic, moveable installation, Paper Room engulfs the performance space with constantly-shifting paper structures, while the dancers’ bodies fold and unfold in continual flux. The looped and interrupted choreography creates moments of synchronicity that dissolve into disorganization.


Created by Laura Peterson
Performed by Jennifer Sydor, Darrin Wright, and Laura Peterson
