In Last Seen Standing Between Brackets, Adva Zakai asks how she can continue dancing when she no longer has a body.

In 2012, Adva Zakai was our guest with I Fail Good. She now returns with O Solitude. This Brussels-based choreographer and performer clearly enjoys such cheerful themes as failure and loneliness… ☺

How can words take on a life of their own, without using the body as a physical instrument? Can you separate a body from its movements, a text from its writer, a person from his or her thoughts? Adva Zakai combines dance, text and animation to give us an answer to these questions. Her words create a choreography of their own and dance on the stage. And Adva Zakai? She takes a place in the audience, just like us, and looks on.

With this performance, this Israeli-born artist explores whether or when language can be separated from its writer or thinker. Can a performance exist without a performer? Come find out with this conceptual performance about language and body!
