Dette er en firkant, et stadium, en verden, et liv. Rummet bliver mindre og tiden bliver kortere. Vi kan alle finde mening i denne dans.

I "Split" forhandler danserne Melanie Lane og Lilian Steiner - en nøgen og en påklædt - om stadigt mindre dimensioner af rum og tid. Som vores verden skrumper, klokken tikker hurtigere, og krop presser tættere på.

Med delikatesse og kompleksitet svælger denne dans i Lucy Guerins skarpe, elegante, koreografiske undersøgelser, der udfolder et fascinerende drama.
Med en musikalsk score af den britiske komponist Scanner, med lys design af Paul Lim og kostumer af Harriet Oxley er "Split" en tankevækkende
strukturel meditation gengivet i bevægelse, leveret af et af Australiens mest originale dansekompagnier.

"Dette for mig er glæden ved at skabe dans. En chance for at grave ned i de rene elementer af koreografi; tid, rum, struktur og bevægelse af menneskekroppen. ”
- Fra Lucy om skabelsen af Split.

Spiller under Aarhus Festuge.
