One like this, the other like that. Though joined at the head by their shared hair, the two figures’ thoughts move in very different directions. In Robert Löbel’s acrobatic story of cutting the cord the tie that holds them together refuses to break, stretching and creaking like rubber to form deeply strange convolutions and reach surprising solutions.
