[…] I start by saying that it left me cold throughout its almost 75 minutes. […] Differences of gender are played down: there is no partnering, no touch (though there are male-female duets), and any distinctions between male and female dance style are subtle. […] “Water Stains on the Wall,” devoid of lightness or humor, keeps celebrating the skill of its own style, like a film actor whose performance tells you he is determined to win the Oscar this time. (Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times, 13.10.2011)
