Young Syrian dancer Ahmad Joudeh experienced his hometown Damascus not merely as a war-torn city, but as a stage. To show the tragic state of his country he danced on piles of rubble. When the chance came, Joudeh fled his country of birth. The dancer has now lived in the Netherlands for one and a half years, studying at the National Ballet Academy. He performs on national and international stages. Yet still he struggles with his new life. He misses his family, who remains in Syria. The pressure to make it here is very high. Which price does Ahmad pay for his newfound freedom?
