#JeSuis

Aakash Odedra

#JeSuis is an edgy new choreographic work by renowned British dancer Aakash Odedra. With dancers from Turkey, Aakash explores the strangulation of freedom of speech, the rise of xenophobic attitudes and the displacement of people through conflict. I matter and I exist. As atrocities in Paris and Brussels trend, #JeSuis gives voice to stories that our media readily forget. Each of our dancers tells us about the struggles of trying to be who you are in places where you are told to be someone else.
