Exploring the relevance of a life in conflict

Don't miss a new ensemble work choreographed by Aakash Odedra, #JeSuis, exploring the relevance of a life in conflict.

#JeSuis will be on 7-9 February 2017 at the Black Box Theatre of The Arts Center at New York University, Abu Dhabi.

#JeSuis brings the lens upon a group of dancers whose place in the world is presented by the media as unwanted neighbours, countries where human catastrophes are a daily given.

Aakash Odedra has developed #JeSuis with a group of Turkish dancers he met in Istanbul. It is inspired by their collective responses to misinterpretations of their motherland by the media. Wrapped up in wider issues of displacement, refuge, and instability, both politically and geographically, it portrays their frustrations of life in a homeland that doesn’t know the meaning of “home” anymore. A place where people keep struggling for a sense of peace; where freedoms/choices are becoming luxury and the main hope is to be safe.

#JeSuis is brought to you by The Arts Center at New York University, Abu Dhabi.
