About Little Murmur

Ages 7 - 17

Based on the true story of a child who one day realises they have been misspelling their own name.

Little Murmur is about discovery and overcoming the odds. An honest, funny and heartfelt journey about the trials and tribulations of living with dyslexia and seeing things differently. Combining visual design and technology with dance and humour Little Murmur explores the warped and exaggerated realities of living in a world you struggle to process.

This captivating performances uses wit, lighting, movement and illustration - a stunning visual treat! Watch bodies and words fly like flocks of birds, a murmuration, a little murmur.


“Murmur (the adult version from which Little Murmur is adapted) is a compelling evocation of mental turmoil. The opposite of opaque; a revelation of a world of wonder inside the mind.” The Arts Desk
