Running time: approximately 85 minutes including interval Suitable for 11+ years Murmur and Inked is a new double-bill by multi-award winning Aakash Odedra Company. Murmur, a collaboration with Lewis Major and Ars Electronica Futurelab delve into the world of the warped and exaggerated realities experienced by those who suffer from dyslexia. Using the ancient language of Kathak dance fused with contemporary dance and cutting edge technology from one of the world's leading arts and media organisations, the piece uses light, mapping and mechanics to weave a narrative around dyslexia. In Inked, Odedra commissions Oliver-award winning choreographer Damien Jalet to explore tribal markings and tattoos. Inspired by Aakash's grandmother's tattoos, the duo explore the notions of belonging, protection and restriction. ...jaw-droppingly goodM/em> -Three Weeks on Rising Presented in partnership with Dance4 ***Free Post Show Discussion with Dance4
