In his new work, One More Thing, Adi Boutrous invites us to consider the value of the group and the individual within the group. Within a ritual that traverses both the contemporary and the traditional, four men experience a rite of passage based on empathy, common destiny, and deep listening. Through this they re-examine the relationship between masculinity and power, and the inherent potential support, intensity, and the desire for synchronicity.
Adi Boutrous started his professional dance training at Matte Asher School for Performing Arts in Kibbutz Gaaton, followed by the Maslool – Professional Dance Program – Tel Aviv-Jaffa. He has performed with Israeli choreographers including Iris Erez, Hillel Kogan, Dana Ruttenberg, Noa Shadur, Rachel Erdos and Bosmat Nossan. His choreographic works have been performed both in Israel and on international stages including Théâtre de la Ville – Paris; Lyone Biennale de la Danse; Julidans Festival; and Curtain Up and International Exposure, Tel Aviv. He received first prize in the Shades of Dance Festival 2013 for his debut choreography What Really Makes Me Mad. Alongside his choreographic and performance work, Boutrous is a vinyl collector and DJ. His musical expertise focuses on the years 1950-1979 and traverses Middle Eastern, Reggae, West African, and Latin genres.
One More Thing is a co-production with Théâtre de la Ville – Paris and fabrik Potsdam. The work is supported by The Foundation for Independent Creators founded by the Ministry of Culture and Sport and the residency program at the Arab – Jewish community Center, Jaffa.
