Little Murmur

Company production | 2021

Aakash Odedra Company and The Spark Arts for Children present Little Murmur by Aakash Odedra. A new dance theatre show for everyone age 7+, families and schools.
Now taking bookings for 2022, for more information about booking the show contact Ali Robertson, Senior Producer

Diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, Aakash found school very challenging. 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’s Odedras 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.

Running Time: 35 minutes

Murmur 2.0

“dancing combines with digital imagery to portray the confusion and alienation his dyslexia caused”

“Discerning and excites the imagination”

“Murmur is the opposite of opaque a revelation of a world of wonder inside the mind”
