Dyslexia in Dance

The choreographer and dancer Aakash Odedra has captured his feelings about his dyslexia in a dance piece called “Murmur” which he performed at the Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House in London in January 2015.  As Judith Mackrell wrote in her review of the dance work in “The Guardian” on January 26 he collaborated with Lewis Major to portray the experience of being dyslexic., “the outstanding moments of this solo come when his dancing combines with digital imagery to portray the alienation his dyslexia caused.  Meaning flies in pixelated clouds from a book, his body is shadowed by an aura of light.”
