Melbourne-based, internationally-acclaimed contemporary dance company, Lucy Guerin Inc, premiere their acclaimed production, Split, at Dance New Air, Japan’s biggest dance festival.
On the stage, two women move in synchronicity as the tension escalates, 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 closes in.
Perhaps the most talked-about dance event of 2017, Split confirms Lucy Guerin’s status as one of Australia’s most fearless and original artists. Split returns to the stage after receiving Australia’s prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Dancer (Lilian Steiner) as well as many other award nominations. The intricately layered percussive score by UK composer Scanner helps create a mesmerising physical drama.
This presentation is the premiere of Lucy Guerin Inc’s work in Japan.
Dance New Air gathers choreographers and dancers from around the world in Tokyo’s Aoyama district. This event is supported by Creative Victoria.
Join us and witness Australian creativity at its best.
