Notes: “It opens before a kind of shrine strung with laundry. There are three girls […] dressed in multi-colored tights which turn their legs into ice-cream parfaits. Over-garment of gauze suggests a burlesque of fashion. The two male dancers […] perform small miracles of muscular control and once in a while veer toward jazz implications but very abstract and against abstract sound rather than anything that could pass for music.” – Robert Landry, Variety
