Adi Boutrous

About the Workshop |

The physical research in my works focuses on touch. The way we touch each other, the way we share a common space and manage it.

The workshop is a meeting of acquaintances with my latest work "Submission." We will work in pairs that will require us to commit ourselves to committing ourselves to the additional body with which we work, and allow us to ask about intimacy, manipulative contact and access to another body.
