Michael Roy’s Cirque du Papier: Performing Paper Magic

Come and see an interactive stand-up origami presentation by visual artist Michael Roy Baldridge.

He’ll transform single, flat squares of paper into 3D forms of animals, flowers, sea life, birds, and decorative objects right before your eyes. One sheet of paper. No cuts. No tears. No glue. With dexterity, quick wit, and knowledge of origami history and technique, he will share the technology and art that is origami. The presentation will be followed by a hands-on origami workshop.
