Aakash Odedra is one of the most sought after British choreographer/dancers today and an extraordinarily gifted performer. Originally trained in Kathak and Bharat Natyam, he has developed a distinctive movement style. He is currently touring Wales performing a double bill of Murmur 2.0 and Inked and will perform at Newport’s Riverfront Theatre next week.
Described as a shimmering mix of dance and digital effects, Murmur 2.0 is a hugely moving show that depicts Aakash’s challenges with written language using stunning imagery, sound and movement.
Inked explores the scarification and tattoos that have been used since old times as marks of identity or experience. Aakash Odedra’s own grandmother’s body was covered by signs that ensured her protection and sense of belonging.
