Inked + Murmur (U.S. Premieres)
October 22-24, 2015

“Combin[ing] classical rigour with a mercurial, adventurous lightness.” - The Guardian

Drawing from the classical dance forms Kathak and Bharat Natyam, choreographer/dancer Aakash Odedra performs two solos in his distinctive style of movement story telling. In Inked, choreographed by Damien Jalet, Odedra examines the body as a place of transformation, and tattoos and other markings as a reflection of identity and experience. Murmur, a collaboration with choreographer Lewis Major and Ars Electronica Futurelab, delves into the idea of warped and exaggerated realities, exploring how misconceptions of dyslexia can be revealed through visual design, light, sound, and movement.
