INHABITANTS is a new 30-minute performance based upon common gestures found in everyday body language. These are translated into repetitive movements, carefully developing and transforming into intriguing physical motifs. The work sets out to portray how connections between our personal body language and our sense of self image manifest within our society. In doing so, INHABITANTS explores Jonathon’s personal relationships to his body, including his identities as a queer person, as a dancer and as a human being.
Developed as a part of the CONTAINER project in collaboration with LEVEL.
Jonathon Luke Baker is a dance artist and movement director. He has danced for companies such as Royal Opera, Rambert Company and New Adventures.
Baker’s work is inspired by different dance styles but his main desire is to express a feeling or mood whether that be through technical choreography or raw movement.
