A bridge between a stage and an audience

It's Always Here by Adi Boutrous, performed with Avshalom Latucha, set out to expose identity through the body. The composition, which begins with repetitive falls, separately, established the environment as one that is not interested in and even rejects the being that attempts to transplant itself, to assimilate, to be absorbed, to blend in. In the continuation, as the physical effort grows, a need for contact arises between the two, a desire to fold inwards. If not in the alienating space, then at least in the human cell that is willing to mutually absorb. It was beautiful and there were moments of pain- for me as a viewer- and it was dance.
