Born in 1989 in Beer Sheva, Israel, Adi trained at the Matte Asher School for Performing Arts in Kibbutz Gaaton, then at Maslool - Professional Dance Program in Tel Aviv-Yafo. He made a name for himself in Israel as a dancer and choreographer, then soon looked towards the international scene. His pieces are rooted in the conveyance of moral ideas, seeking to reveal essence and intimate expression – a performative state that he has been developing since his first work, What Really Makes Me Mad, which earned him first prize at Shades in Dance 2013. In 2016, he created It's Always Here, a superb duet about searching for the roots of human identity, which was performed in 2018 at the Biennale de la danse de Lyon, at Pavillon Noir in Aix-en-Provence, and at Scène 55 in Mougins. His latest pieces, Submission (2018) and One More Thing (2020), form an organic ensemble around gender identities and rites of passage. In November 2022, Adi Boutrous received the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Sport Award for Creation for his body of work to date.
