Choreographer Guilherme Miotto puts three remarkable dancers from the urban and modern dance scene together in a theatrical setting. From cutting-edge breakdance, experimental hip-hop to contemporary theater dance: Shane Boers, Simon Bus, and Evangelos Biskas are evenly matched. In Even Worse, you see them not as dancers, but as the young men that they are. This shows in the plainness and virtuosity of their movement, the nonchalance and the tension of their interaction, and in the familiarity of their obsession and loneliness. Stuck in their own worlds, they create heroic images in which they capture themselves again and again. Battling between resistance and submission, they organize the ultimate frustrated escape attempt. Pure impotence translated into pure physicality, at times exuberant, at times painful, sometimes sad, but always breathtaking.
