BODYLAND New production, after European & Israeli tour November/December 2013, receives superb reviews: “Juxtaposing the physical with the philosophical, the tender with the tantalizing and the political with the profane, Bodyland is a performance with bounce and balls. Yossi and Oded prove time and again that you can be entertaining without compromising art, funny without cliché and intelligent without being didactic. Their texts and timing are as tight as their bodies, all used to full advantage here…” Midnight East
