LITTLE MURMUR

Buy Tickets

Groundbreaking projection, an extraordinary soundscape and a blizzard of paper and confetti combine in the stunning dance theatre show Little Murmur.

Watch bodies and words fly like flocks of birds as we’re taken on a journey with UK dancer Aakash Odedra. Diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, Aakash found school a challenge. He spelt his name wrong until he was 21 and it wasn’t until he “found the missing ‘A’” that he felt he belonged. 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. Based on Aakash’s hugely moving show Murmur 2.0, this dazzling visual treat is an honest and heartfelt conversation about the trials and tribulations of living with dyslexia, facing challenges and overcoming the odds.
