Lucy Guerin Dance Duet Split

Lucy Guerin Inc’s extraordinary duet work, Split, is set to continue its globetrotting touring schedule for the rest of 2018.

First stop is Japan, where award-winning dancers Lilian Steiner and Melanie Lane will perform the critically-acclaimed work as part of the Dance New Air festival.

Next up are some high-profile dates in the USA starting at the Baryshnikov Arts Centre in New York, followed by three shows at White Bird in Portland.

From November, the team will be on the other side of the Atlantic, presenting Split at several of Europe’s winter wonderlands: Budapest, Paris and Brugge.

It is intoxicating. By perfectly synchronous dancing, in which even the angular movements are elegant and fluid. Absolute harmony, you would say. An aesthetic wonder.”
