Murmur 2.0 — Aakash Odedra Company


WHEN November 11, 2020
8 PM WHERE Online Part of "Off the Stage Events" WHO The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi Open to the Public

The acclaimed UK-based dancer Aakash Odedra explores his own childhood struggles through a nexus of light, sound, design, and movement.

Revisiting the Middle East premiere of this work, presented during The Arts Center’s first season in February 2016, this performance was filmed at The Place in London.

Set to an evocative score by Nicki Wells, Murmur 2.0 reveals the tension that exists between the rational world that we live in and the richness of our imagination. It explores Aakash’s battles with dyslexia and how the world around him responded to his perceived disability. The piece examines how the misconceptions of dyslexia can be revealed through visual design, light, sound, and movement.

Live Q&A
The streamed performance will be followed by a live Q&A. Aakash Odedra discusses the process and creation of the work. The panel will also answer questions posted by the audience.
