'Laplane’s study in power and originality steals the show. Laplane is clearly a major talent in the making. Indeed, from a personal point of view, I found more originality in the muscular shapes of Maze than in some of the more traditional ballet set-pieces.'

Sibilo- World Ballet Day
On World Ballet Day 2016 Scottish Ballet showed this extract of Sibilo featuring the male duet. Sibilo was premiered in 2016 as part of Scottish Ballet’s Autumn Season and is a series of vignettes, with miniature portraits of the personalities within the company, each with their own individuality. The way clothes are used in the piece is about revealing what is behind the dancers' everyday costumes. It’s another way of seeing the dancers, getting behind the façade, getting behind their everyday routine..
'Quirky, angular moves performed by four couples with wit and sensuality meet clever costuming that literally flies off the stage'
