ONE SINGLE ACTION

Traversing worlds of chaos, two dancers arrive at a clear and decisive act, in a new work helmed by a master of movement.

Two dancers traverse a narrow path, in and out of sync, in conflict and in harmony—moving through fragmented terrain that leads in one direction. In an attempt to interrupt the acceleration of our times and pause the relentless scrolling of their thoughts, they resort to a single desperate action.

Following the premieres of two large-scale works PENDULUM (RISING, 2021) and NEWRETRO (2023), One Single Action returns to the intimacy of choreographer Lucy Guerin’s award-winning work Split. Amber McCartney and Geoffrey Watson ride the internal and external rifts in a world fraught with interference.
