An audio visual film derived from material used in Folded.
Folded is a live audio visual stage performance co produced by SDNA (UK) and Ticonzero (Italy).
It is the first chapter of an artistic research which aims to investigate the interaction of various live media and the integration of different artistic languages: audio visual, sculpture, fashion, physical performance and theatrical process.
The performance is divided into 8 parts (the maximum number of times paper can be folded) and explores the physical and metaphysical properties and potentials of paper.
Paper is the starting point for all of the artists. The costume, designed by Cabinet of Curiosity using origami techniques, is made out of paper, all of the visuals are filmed events or animations derived from paper and Alessandro's music is composed using sounds of paper.
The performer, Nina Fog, plays a creature born from paper who constantly transforms herself, reinventing her corporeality.
