Pieter Brueghel’s painting; "Children's Games" is a wonderful inspiration for a performance by that name by Noa Dar. With their costumes the dancers look like they just step out from the painting to invite the audience to enter Brueghel’s world. It's a wonderful dance performance" Osnat Blair, "To be parents"
