Radically honest, contrary in form, raw yet delicate. These are the words used by the jury of the 2015 André Gingras Award – the bravery prize for choreographers who take artistic risks – to describe the work of Guilherme Miotto [Brazil, 1979]. Even Worse is a confirmation that he is in a league of his own.
The choreography sees three striking dancers from the scenes of urban and contemporary dance escape themselves. Time and again they are caught; time and again Miotto dares them to free themselves. Who is the jailer: the mind or the body?
Shane Boers, Simon Bus and Evangelos Biskas each come from different dance backgrounds – from contemporary theatre dance to cutting edge, breakdance and experimental. Dancers? True, but in Even Worse they are young men first: laidback, yet edgy; ordinary guys at first glance, but with virtuoso motor skills; recognisable in their obsessions and loneliness.
