Dance Review: Yama

Noa Wertheim’s new choreographic venture, Yama, is an amalgam of poetic mysticism, new-age spirituality and acute perceptiveness of space, all of which create pleasing beauty. This is true ot only for Yama but probably for most of Wertheim’s pieces. These elements have always been there, but as the years pass her craft gets more polished, the seams tighter and the other stage components, particularly music (arranged for Yama by Ran Begano), lighting (design by Dani Fishof-Magenta) and costumes (by designer Sasson Kedem) so cohesive it seems the entire team is geared toward a preconceived aesthetic goal. Yet the work, as with any art form, would have been enriched by some subversive undercurrents.
