«Wherlock sets up a row of sacrificial altars around which three couples stalk, pursue, comfort and embrace each other. Love and death are portrayed as threatening, yet calming elements. Interspersed with breathtaking lifts, it is an outstanding dance performance.»  Karsten Umlauf — Kultur Joker, Mai 2004
