Perhaps the most talked-about dance event of 2017, Split confirms Lucy Guerin’s status as one of Australia’s most fearless artists and original choreographers. 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.Split makes it's Sydney debut after receiving a prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Dancer (Lilian Steiner) as well as numerous other award nominations. Coupled with the intricately layered percussive score by UK composer Scanner,  this mesmerising physical drama is not to be missed.
