Aakash Odedra’s new production sees him stepping outside his performance role to create a stunning dance production for seven international dancers. Named after the solidarity movement which followed horrific murders at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, #JeSuis is an edgy and thought-provoking work. Odedra explores the strangulation of freedom of speech, the rise of xenophobic attitudes and the displacement of people through conflict.
“#JeSuis isn’t just a stunning piece of contemporary dance… It’s a galling political movement” – ***** Edinburgh49
The performance will be followed by a post show discussion panel consisting two #JeSuis performers and Dr. Ajmal Hussain of the Manchester University Sociology Department, and arranged by Aberystwyth University's CCPR - Critical and Cultural Politics and Racialisation Research Group.
