Aakash Odedra Company: #JeSuis
Aakash Odedra Company presents #JeSuis, a touching dance-theatre piece about individuals struggling to find their voice in the stand against oppression.
#JeSuis explores oppression in all its guises, layers, and contexts. It acknowledges that some acts of oppression are more loudly heard and deeply felt than others.
While #JeSuisCharlie brought solidarity, comfort and solace to a world grieving the horrific attacks in Paris 2015, other equally appalling attacks took place in Kabul and Istanbul, but failed to capture the attention of (social) media in quite the same way.
#JeSuis is dedicated to all the people whose stories and plights have not yet been “hashtagged”. Erased from the past, unowned in the present and condemned in the future; whether they are in prison, in a refugee camp, or a house with closed curtains; and whether it’s their freedom of movement, speech, religion or liberty that is at stake.
In English #JeSuis translates to I Am, but this piece also says I Exist, I Matter.
