About Us

Origami is a Swiss company active since 2018 which aims to create and present live shows. She shares various experiences through physical poetry, musical creations, humor, acrobatic techniques, balance and juggling.

 

The company does circus ... Lively and multidisciplinary (music, theater, dance, and other forms of expression mingle)

Sometimes intimate, sometimes grandiose and often both!

 

The whole team of companions is made up of long-standing friends and collaborators, coming from Geneva, France, Chile and Argentina.

 

 

From this company were born four creations:
"Esperanza" , "The Bandwidth Man",
  "Origami Circus"  and  "The Little Girl in the Trash"

Philosophy  

Since its first productions, the company has targeted the construction of history. “We're here to give a little moment of life” Always paying particular attention to providing an image that moves away from those preconceived or distorted about the circus. Just like theater or dance, the circus is a real headache! Each show develops its atmosphere, its artistic universe and its particular conceptions.  


The show is alive, the artists are seen in real life. They are and face the audience and occasionally break the fourth wall. The possibilities of communication then become numerous and thanks to the gifts of the present moment, they make each performance unique and ephemeral. We give time for reflection, are committed to our ideas and try to bring the works out of the creative ordinary. The shows come from the passion, the adventures they make us live and our desire to create...
