Performance | Global Dance Connections series
Lucy Guerin Inc
Australian choreographer Lucy Guerin’s sharp, elegant Split reflects the dilemmas of negotiating with oneself and others in a world of increased pressure and reduced resources. Two outstanding female dancers – one clothed and one naked – are framed by ever-diminishing dimensions of space and time with escalating intensity, accompanied by a pulsing electronic score. Cycling through competition, negotiation, harmony and aggression, this thought-provoking, multilayered work has received numerous awards. Lucy Guerin Inc was established in Melbourne in 2002 and is regarded as one of Australia’s most fearless dance companies, touring internationally. Guerin has also been commissioned by leading organizations including Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project, Rambert, and Chunky Move.
