How Dyslexia Impacts Aakash Odedra’s Art

Aakash Odedra, principle dancer in the Aakash Odedra Dance Company, co-created a dance piece about his experiences of being dyslexic called Murmur. The dance piece became really hot, and eventually made it’s way, as a presentation, to Ted Global.

So far, the viral video has been viewed 477,975 times and continues to stimulate important conversations around intelligence and ability.  Here Aakash joins me to chat about dyslexia, art and his inspiring journey with them both.

Choreographer Aakash Odedra is dyslexic and has always felt that his best expression comes through movement. “Murmur” is his ode to that experience, teaming up with co-creators Lewis Major and Ars Electronica Futurelab. Watch him spin his way through the center of a storm, as pages of books take flight all around him.
