  #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, instability, both politically & 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 & the main hope is to be safe.
