Lucy Guerin Inc



A square, a stage, a world, a life. Space is getting tight and time is getting shorter. In Split, the dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner, one clothed and one naked, are framed by ever-diminishing dimensions of space and time with escalating intensity. This dance revels in Lucy Guerin’s sharp, elegant choreographic investigations, reflecting the dilemmas of negotiating with oneself and others in a world of increased pressure and reduced resources.

Featuring a musical score by UK composer Scanner, the award-winning Split is a thought-provoking structural meditation rendered in movement and delivered by one of Australia’s most fearless and original dance companies.
