Regarding Yesterday is not one, but a series of shows in which today’s audience influences what tomorrow’s audience will see. At a certain moment in each performance both the viewers and the performer will look at this piece from a whole new perspective… whatever happens then will inspire the creation of the following episode in the series.

In October 2013 the audience in Bucharest will determine what the public in Belgrade will experience later that month…


During the past 10 years Adva Zakai has been exploring various performance formats where she has acted as choreographer, performer or curator. During 2010 she obtained an artistic research grant, in the framework of the post master program a.pass in Antwerp, in which she researched the influence of a curatorial approach on the development of new performance formats. She pursued dance education in Israel followed by studies at the Mime School, Amsterdam (2000 – 2002). In recent years, she has been collaborating with other artists on curating participative events, conferences and festivals, as well as leading workshops and attending studio visits in art schools and dance academies. She is currently artist in residence at les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers (Aubervillers/Paris).
