A choreographed duet of division in a time-strapped world of intensifying pressures.

Split shifts between two women, reconciled and in conflict, one naked and the other clothed negotiating ever-diminishing dimensions of time and space. This space is constantly narrowing, reflecting the dilemmas of negotiating with oneself and others in an increasingly complex world. Set to a percussive musical score by UK composer Scanner, Split revels in Lucy Guerin’s sharp, elegant choreographic investigations.

Split is a thought-provoking meditation in movement from one of Australia’s most fearless dance companies.

Performance Advisory: Full nudity

“Ruminative, poignant and provocative, Split is a work of intricate yet unadorned artistry.”
