Originally commissioned by The Arts Center and filmed in The Black Box in February 2018 at its world premiere, #JeSuis is an ensemble work exploring the relevance of a life in conflict.

Aakash Odedra 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. 

The streamed performance will be followed by a live Q&A, with Odedra and members of the company discussing the process and creation of the work. The panel will also answer questions posted by the audience.
