Aakash was diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, which made school very challenging for him. Defined by his learning difficulties, not his abilities, dance became his mode of expression. Combining visual design and technology with dance and humour, Little Murmur explores the warped and exaggerated realities of living in a world you struggle to process. Little Murmur is a stunning visual treat for young audiences and their families. Based on Aakash Odedra’s hugely moving show Murmur, this is an honest and heart felt conversation about the trials and tribulations of living with dyslexia. Watch bodies and words fly like flocks of birds, a murmuration, a little murmur.
This November, Little Murmur, presented with Gem Arts, comes to Dance City on Sunday the 19th. There will be paper and confetti blizzards, ground breaking projections, and an extraordinary soundscape in this fabulous and inspiring show for adults and children ages 7+.
