"An intricate, layered duet, 'Never The Less' is a refined work performed with exceptional skill and sensitivity."
(Dana Shalev, January 2013).
" 'Never The Less' by Dafi Altabeb, two dancers moving as one in harmonious, almost perfect movement, with a shared breath. Vulnerable parts of one body encounter of the other body in a soft and gentle unity of warm, breathing entities, an endless loop. The dancers are excellent and this is a beutiful piece.
(Anat Zacharia, Yediot Aharonot, Nov 2012).
