The sisters in any event fail grandiosely. They take hold of one another, choke each other, slow each other down: if one of them pushes the table to the right, the other will pull it back. When one of them finally has the impulse to break away, the other will hold her back and will, literally, bear her down. All of this is expressed through dance, the only counterpoint being the intense breathing of the two dancers. Their attempts to struggle free appear exhausting and tedious. There’s no progress here. Only maximum expenditure with zero output. Badische Zeitung
