“Minus 16 not only delights in its own wackiness, but also celebrates the joy of dancing.”

-San Francisco Chronicle

“Naharin has combined pure movement and theater in pieces charged with tension and drama that nonetheless, he claims, go beyond political metaphor or any particular meaning; Naharin is instead ‘‘turned on by the act of composition,’’ by textures, colors, rhythms.”

Anna Della Subin, The New York Times
