Reviews for Oh Baby at Resolution, 12 February 2009:
"Hagit Yakira's duet Oh Baby steps stylishly beyond the usual danced musings on coupledom... Rather than presenting a generic scenario, though, expecting our empathy, they humorously ape work of similar themes, drawing parallels, through game playing, with the process of dance making itself.... "

Impossibly yet plausibly loveable, the pair exhibits the craziness that only true intimacy permits, as they sing, laugh, exhale, roll, squeal, embrace, tease, grope, beg and posture their way through a relationship..."
