Adva Zakai: Last Seen Standing Between Brackets
Wednesday, March 30, 7pm (doors) 8pm (performance)
Admission: Free ($5 suggested donation)

Belgium-based Adva Zakai’s choreographic works explore how body and language are perceived through each other, and evoke an experience that can be grasped through multiple perspectives. Last Seen Standing Between Brackets attempts to separate a body from its own movements, a text from its writer, and a person from their own mind in order to be able to imagine all these elements existing without the one who created them.

"How will I keep dancing once I no longer have a body?" In Last Seen Standing Between Brackets, the performer’s mind will escape her head and settle inside yours, her words will leave her mouth and dance on their own on stage, and her body will join the public to watch the performance.

Through live performance and text animation, the piece introduces a fragmented self that simultaneously appears in various spaces and temporalities– virtual, actual, private, public, organic and digital.
