Two dancers – one naked, one clothed – occupy the same space, but as room to move grows smaller and smaller the challenge of sharing a shrinking world becomes ever more desperate.
Lucy Guerin’s Split is both simple in conceit and brilliant in execution. The Melbourne-based choreographer plays with time and space to hypnotic effect, spinning from the movements of the two dancers a power struggle of desires and demands. Set to a driving soundtrack by electronic composer Scanner and performed by two of the most virtuostic dancers working in Australia today – Ashley McLellan and Lilian Steiner – this is a gripping performance with deep resonances for a world in an ever-more precarious state.
Presented by Arts House and Melbourne International Arts Festival.
