"A meditative performance perfect for quieting the anxieties of our trying times." -New Show New York


Created by You&I, and featuring co-creator Manatsu Tanaka, the piece uses the traditional Japanese practice of origami to guide a single audience participant through a process of reflection and active intention based meditation.
