Little Murmur

by Aakash Odedra

Listen to Aakash Odedra and Adel Al-Salloum talking to BBC Radio Leicester about the origins of Little Murmur

Aakash Odedra Company and The Spark Arts for Children present Little Murmur. A new dance theatre show for everyone aged 7+, families and schools.

Based on the true story of one child's struggle with letters and words. Little Murmur is about facing challenges and overcoming the odds. An honest  and  funny  tale  about the trials and tribulations of seeing things differently.

Jump into a world of dance, technology and illustration to see this heartfelt journey take flight.  Little Murmur explores the exaggerated realities of living in a world you can struggle to process.

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

A stunning visual treat for everyone aged 7+.

It's time to be mesmerised.

Running Time: 35 minutes
