“… a work of intricate yet unadorned artistry.” The Australian, Eamonn Kelly, 2017

Lucy Guerin heads one of Australia’s most fearless dance companies, and her award-winning duet Split is one of her most celebrated; a sharp and elegant work that is at once abstract and dramatic. Dancers Lilian Steiner and Ashley McLellan, one clothed and one naked, masterfully perform a dance that grows in intensity as the dimensions of space and time diminish.

Performance is approximately 50 minutes with no intermission.
