Company production | 2018

Aakash Odedra Company presents #JeSuis, a touching dance-theatre piece about individuals struggling to find their voice in the stand against oppression.

Through a diversity of dance, music and cultures, these seven dancers from Turkey deliver a tribute to all the people, whether they are in prison, a refugee camp, or in a house behind closed curtains, whose stories have not yet been ‘hashtagged’ and where their freedom of movement, their speech, religion or liberty remains at stake.

#JeSuis was born from the belief that our ability to speak out and stand together will see us through to brighter times.

**** “Gritty, authentic and bold”

***** “A stunning piece of contemporary dance”

“The dancers’ powerful expressive bodies, fired by absolute commitment, vividly create a world of low-level relentless terror.”
