Split is a solo performance born from whispers and flickers of early childhood experiences that have woven themselves through the performer’s life. The work is an investigation into memory, sexuality, personal identity and gender. Beginning as slow as the eye can see, the work engages in a process of physically inverting, destabilising and deforming the female body. This is in response to the tumultuous and
often contradictory feelings that reside and build in the performer as she navigates being this woman in this society. Ultimately, this work is
an edifying act of externalising that which is wild and expansive in all of us.
