One More Thing
In One More Thing, Adi Boutrous strives to convey a state of listening, solidarity and support for the other. The use of force, carrying, devotion to a body, and the shapes of a structure based on a rite of passage, express the relationship between individual and group. In their reflection, the work reveals further layers of masculinity, the potential of synchronization, and a common destiny.
Adi Boutrous was born in Beer Sheva. He studied at Matte Asher School for Performing Arts in Kibbutz Gaaton, followed by the “Maslool – Professional Dance Program.” He has performed with Israeli choreographers Iris Erez, Hillel Kogan, Dana Ruttenberg, Noa Shadur, and others. His choreographic works have been performed in Théâtre de la Ville – Paris, Lyon Biennale de la Danse, Belgrade Dance Festival, and Julidans Festival, among others. Adi received first prize in the Shades of Dance Festival 2013 for his debut choreography What Really Makes Me Mad. Boutrous is also a vinyl collector and DJ. His musical expertise focuses on the years 1950-1979 and traverses the Middle Eastern, West African, Caribbean and Latin genres.
