In a Black Black Land – reviews
“This is the best Israeli dancing I’ve seen this year, and one of the best post-modern works I’ve ever seen. In A Black, Black Land is a pure manifestation of a post-modern dance language. Each one of the movements seems, simple and natural, and they lack the synthetic line of the modern dance and the ballet; those are not “dancing movements”. And yet, in order to perform this sequence of movements, one has to be a skillful dancer who got rid of any mannerism and studied dancing aesthetics. “In a Black, Black Land” is also an impressing musical achievement: the modern music by Uri Frost is an important element in this work, which Dar response to it in a sensitive and sophisticated way.”
– Gal Alster, “Time-Out Tel Aviv”
"In “In a Black Black Land” there is an interesting tension between aggressive patterns and parts of softness and tenderness which the wonderful dancers finely express with their body. It’s an excellent group, joined by the actress Iyar Wolpe, in a beautiful and emotionally charged text."

“Noa Dar's In a Black, Black Land displayed the imaginative way she uses the stage, the complexity of her physical work, the width of her dance vocabulary, and the earnest efforts she allots for intellectual content.”
