The Paper Crane
In this project sponsored by Cirque du Soleil, we follow a young girl in search of her creative voice and individuality. On a rainy day, she finds a paper crane and decides to try to make her own. We follow her determination, frustration, and eventual joy in creating various origami shapes with humanized pieces of paper. Through the choreography of the paper dancers, the original animated projection content and other visual elements, we get a glimpse into the imagination of the young girl.
