In "Come lay down" the studio transformed into a metaphorical surgery room, as well as a gallery space, in which the body is exhibited and transfigured. Combining body postures, movement, text, sound and objects, we are exploring notions as "healthy body" and "sick body" and the gap between the intimate and private experience of one’s body and the medical, bureaucratic attitude towards it. The audience is invited to move from patient to therapist, from ability to helplessness, between question to interrogation, healing and torture, from reality to fantasy.

Ruth Eshel – Dance Diaries 


“I came out amazed and absolutely in awe from what I saw. In the performance, as in a laboratory, these two talented and daring creators conducted experiments on the living human body, breaking all barriers. Everything is exposed. This exceptional work is a hymn to man’s devotion to life, to his desire to be healed, to the willingness to suffer in order to be cured, to the vulnerability of the body, and at the same time to its resilience, as well as a defiant protest against its objectification.”

Tami Katz Luria – Culture Universe


“Her exposure is slow and painful and does not spare any flaw or intimate detail of her body, her soul, which is the laid-bare soul of us all. The work is hard-hitting and direct, not pitying. Performed wonderfully by Noa Dar, with impressive physical control that shows us that despite all this existential depression, the body, permeated with pain, is disciplined, alive, and kicking.”

Nira Perry – Salona


"There is fertile ground here for many associations, memories, questions, examinations of boundaries and insights. Especially today, when we are all captives of the Coronavirus, questions regarding personal freedom and the way souls are treated – are so relevant.
This is a unique and moving performance. vote with your feet.”

Idit Suslik – The Contemporary Eye


"The audience’s viewing experience is employed as a significant dramaturgical element in the anguish that the work provokes. The presence of the body in the tension between the two opposing frequencies at this moment, reveals precisely the similarity between them, and especially the speed and ease with which the act of treatment becomes a practice of control.”
