Lucy Guerin’s Split Returns the Choreographer to Her Minimalist Roots.
Two performers—one nude (Lilian Steiner) and one clothed (Melanie Lane)—take their places on a stage. Then something strange happens. After 20 minutes of dancing, they bisect the floor with tape and continue with the show, each confined to one half of the stage, for another 10 minutes. The available room continues to shrink, until both space and time have dwindled to nothing and the bodies of the two dancers are pressed ever closer together.
