Origami Cosmos

About the Performance:

A process of ‘Folding, unfolding, and re-folding’, A process of virtual possibilities for physical becomings. Omar Rajeh borrows the title for this performance from French philosopher Gilles Deleuze and sets it as a basis for a mesmerizing and non stop journey of images and meanings. Accompanied by an innovative & technological approach to sound and composition, both worlds of sound and movement expand beyond their own limitations and frames.
