Initially inspired by Raymond Carver’s short story Cathedral, in which a sightful man’s hand is guided by a blind man’s heart in drawing a cathedral, Fold Here unfolds in an implausible universe filled with empty cardboard boxes as the basic units of all existing matter. In pursuit of the boxes’ elusive essence, the performers explore the physical, sensorial and spiritual properties of human beings—as parallel contents and containers of existence.
