Aakash Odedra Company presents the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression award-winning production #JeSuis, an enthralling dance-theatre piece about individuals struggling to find their voice in the stand against oppression.
Seven dancers from Turkey deliver a soaring 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.
Set against a powerful soundtrack, #JeSuis was born from the belief that our ability to speak out and stand together will see us through to brighter times.
