Split

Date: 17 Jul 2018

Space is getting tight and time is getting shorter.

Two women – clothed and unclothed – move in synchronicity while the tension escalates and the allotted dance space shrinks.

Are they the same person?

Are we witnessing an aggressive power struggle within a relationship?

Or do they represent the way we all negotiate modern pressure, time, and demands while our space to manoeuvre seems to endlessly reduce.

Choreographed by Lucy Guerin, Split makes its Sydney debut after receiving a Helpmann Award for Best Dancer (Lilian Steiner). Coupled with the intricately layered percussive score by UK composer Scanner, this is mesmerising physical drama.
