Electrical manipulation of magnetic materials by current-induced spin torque constitutes the basis of spintronics. Recent studies have demonstrated electrical controls of ferromagnets and collinear antiferromagnets by spin-orbit torque (SOT). Here we show an unconventional response to SOT of a non-collinear antiferromagnet, which has recently attracted great attention owing to large anomalous Hall effect despite vanishingly small net magnetization. In heterostructures with epitaxial non-collinear antiferromagnet Mn$$_3$$Sn, we observe a characteristic fluctuation of Hall resistance, which is attributed to a persistent rotation of chiral-spin structure of Mn$$_3$$Sn driven by SOT. We find that level of the fluctuation that varies with sample size represents the number of magnetic domains of Mn$$_{3}$$Sn. In addition, Mn$$_3$$Sn thickness dependence of critical current reveals that SOT generated by small current density below 20 MA cm$$^{-2}$$ effectively acts on the chiral-spin structure even in thick Mn$$_3$$Sn above 20 nm. The results provide unprecedented pathways of electrical manipulation of magnetic materials, offering new-concept spintronics devices with unconventional functionalities and low-power consumption.
