This is a square, a stage, a world, a life. Space is getting tight and time is getting shorter. We can all make sense of this dance.
In Split, dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner negotiate ever-diminishing dimensions of space and time. As our world contracts, the clock ticks faster, and bodies press closer.
With delicacy and complexity, this dance revels in Lucy Guerin’s sharp, elegant choreographic investigations; unfolding a mesmerising physical drama.
Featuring a musical score by UK composer Scanner, lighting design by Paul Lim and costumes by Harriet Oxley, Split is a thought-provoking structural meditation rendered in movement and delivered by one of Australia’s most original dance companies.
