Predictability is something the Brazilian-Dutch choreographer Guilherme Miotto [1979] hates with a passion. He prized open dance’s vocabulary with work such as Rise Up and .Ball, solos for Menno van Gorp [breakdance world champion] and Nasser El Jackson [groundmoves world champion]. In 2015 he won the André Gingras Award, the prize for choreographers who are unafraid of taking artistic risks. His latest dance solo is another act of defiance, of both dance and gravity. He is creating Pole for Yvonne Smink [1990], the former Dutch pole dancing champion. Her origins lie in indoor climbing. She mixes her technique with Chinese pole and contemporary dance. Pole is honest, high-risk and unconditional without losing any of its fragile command.
