Presented by Lucy Guerin Inc and Arts House
This is a square, a stage, a world, a life. Space is getting tight and time is getting shorter. We can all make sense of this dance.
In Split, dancers Melanie Lane and Lilian Steiner negotiate ever-diminishing dimensions of space and time. As our world contracts, the clock ticks faster, and bodies press closer.
With delicacy and complexity, this dance revels in Lucy Guerin’s sharp, elegant choreographic investigations; unfolding a mesmerising physical drama.
Featuring a musical score by UK composer Scanner, lighting design by Paul Lim and costumes by Harriet Oxley, Split is a thought-provoking structural meditation rendered in movement and delivered by one of Australia’s most original dance companies.

Kinaesthesia Intensive facilitated by Victoria Hunt, Melanie Lane & Phillip Adams
A miniature intensive exploring massive choreographic scores. An intensive for the dance maker looking to dissect their choreographic practice and find new impetus. Taking the body through a journey of experimentation, Kinaesthesia explores the dialogue between choreographic scores and improvisation, anatomy and kinesiology.
Kinaesthesia aims to activate the mind and find unorthodox ways to devise movement. The intensive features three disciplines of thought from independent artists Victoria Hunt, Melanie Lane and BalletLab Artistic Director, Phillip Adams.
