The award-winning Aakash Odedra Company is building an international ensemble incorporating talented, young, Turkish contemporary dancers. Using a fusion of styles, #JeSuis – presented as part of Journeys Festival International – explores personal stories of conflict, media manipulation, displacement and identity. What makes “home” when millions are on the move?
The performance of #JeSuis (In Progress) will be followed by an after-show discussion entitled Journeys – The Art of Displacement. Aakash Odedra Company and Journeys Festival International will share the inspiration for their work – including artistic contributions from European partners – and will also invite an audience response and debate on issues of displacement and the meaning of “home”.
Running time: 2 hours including 20 mins interval
