Thursday 24th February
11am and 2pm
Presented by Aakash Odedra Company and The Spark Arts for Children
Performed Live at Unity
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.
This work has been commissioned as part of Vital Spark which is a movement addressing the lack of diversity in the Performance for Young Audiences sector.
