Besides the importance of the design and spatial aspects in this choreography such as a sharp band of light that runs diagonally over the stage, there is also a marked field of tension between the dancers.

The tension is especially expressed through the confrontation of movement and looks. De Châtel has not necessarily changed her style, but rather enriched her movement idiom by making the already present tension tangible through human emotions. (Haarlems Dagblad)

While the dancers are dressed in a very neutral fashion in other choreographies, the choreographer now emphatically uses female and male costumes. (Utrechts Nieuwsblad)

Without any sentiment, in an abstract and minimal framework, but in an expressionist composition, De Châtel develops an anecdotal detail in Trio, sublimely pouring her already proven qualities in a new form. (Trouw)
