Dancing in flawless unison, their movement at times poised, at others animalistic, two fearless female performers demand nothing less than our full attention. Moving through the first part of their compelling duet, they instinctively navigate the terrain of a stark set to a shamanistic, looping, drum score by composer Scanner.
Suddenly, a shift, as the duo pauses to divide the space and restrict the world they inhabit. Tension rises with newly introduced undercurrents of rage, conflict and control transforming the performance, opening up questions about duality as time and space diminish.
With one dancer clothed, one nude, Lucy Guerin’s Split landed in London as part of Dance Umbrella 2019, having blown away audiences in Australia and around the world.
