‘At first glance, Melanie Maar’s dances are subtle creations, but by the final blackout, it’s hard to shake the feeling that you’ve traveled to a mystical land where nothing is what it seems.
It wasn’t just her space, she seemed to be saying. It was ours, too.’ NYT, Gia Kourlas, October 23rd 2013

‘Remaining tranquil and contained, Maar’s acute dancing can seem white-hot and unruly. Her austere, ritualistic, dances are uncommonly good at evoking, without representing the natural world.’ The New Yorker, Brian Seibert, October 14th 2013
