The finest choreographers have not only a signature style, but walk their own creative paths—think Pina Bausch, Merce Cunningham, Crystal Pite, Michael Clark, Botis Seva and Sharon Eyal. All are idiosyncratic visionaries with their own stylistic quirks and traits. All have raised eyebrows, and raised the roof with their work, which may not be rooted in the comfort of traditions and familiarity, but rather, leave indelible marks on the viewer. If you can make an audience member squirm, laugh, feel puzzled, or even aroused—sometimes, all at once—job done! The best artists create worlds within worlds. So it is with genius choreographer and dancer Sophie Laplane. The Franco-British ex-Scottish Ballet dancer turned choreographer creates the most astonishing pieces, characterised by otherworldly balletic patterns and jerky hip-hop moves, like popping and locking, alongside some playful scenes too. She's no stranger to inducing chuckles.
