Murmur and Inked is a new double bill from the Aakash Odedra Company.
Curve Associate Artist, Aakash Odedra is one of Britain’s most sought after dancers. He has developed a distinctive movement style following intensive training with some of the most prestigious choreographers in the world.
In Murmur, Aakash and Australian choreographer Lewis Major delve into the idea of warped and exaggerated realities. In a major collaboration with Arts Electronica Futurelab, the piece explores how the misconceptions of dyslexia can be revealed through visual design, light, sound, movement.
Inked, choreographed by Olivier Award-winner, Damien Jalet, explores how the body becomes a place of transformation. The figures and drawings made on his own body reveal the inner duality of the dancer, who enters through a series of transformative stages in a self-seeking quest; an exploration of the body’s limits and powers.
