Split Sides allows audiences to experience ‘chance operations' at work. Each design element was made in two parts, by one or two artists. The two parts of the music were composed by two bands, British alternative rock group Radiohead, and Sigur Rós, the renowned experimental group from Iceland who will perform the score live. The choreography, also in two parts, was made with the use of the computer program Dance Forms and features a number of ensemble passages as well as solos, duets with inventive partnering, and trios.
Before the dance, a dice-roll is presented in front of the audience to determine the order of the five elements: choreography, music, costumes, décor, and lighting. Mathematically, there are thirty two different possible versions of Split Sides but with such striking visual designs, dynamic and fun music, and complex and engaging choreography any combination is a rewarding dance experience.
