Running time: 40 minutes
Book

Little Murmur is a new dance theatre show for families and schools, that features groundbreaking projection, an extraordinary soundscape and a blizzard of paper and confetti.

“This was one of THE most beautiful pieces of children’s theatre I have ever seen… which also made me feel very seen” (Audience member)

Diagnosed with dyslexia at a young age, Aakash Odedra found school very challenging: he misspelt his name 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 stunning visual treat is an honest and heart felt conversation about the trials and tribulations of living with dyslexia, facing challenges and overcoming the odds.

Watch bodies and words fly like flocks of birds, a murmuration, a little murmur.

Suitable for ages 7+
