Dominique Baker

I've grown up in Switzerland, moved to London for my studies and somehow ended up staying. Places and human connections are what inspire my artistic practise, I love dancing in unconventional places like on a mountain, at the sea or in places that feel somewhat lost.

I have currently moved back to my hometown of Bristol to reconnect with fellow creatives and develop my practice further. I am interested in the mind, the body and using different mediums to grapple with the amazing mystery that is life.

I am an artist who makes work which blurs the lines between dance and performance art. I am currently employed as the President of Dance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. My work aims at decolonizing bodies, movements and spaces.

I grew up in Dartmoor, South-West England and then moved to London. Now I am further afield dancing in Portugal. I am inspired by people, memories, happenings, the felt experience and the unknown.

I am dance artist originally from Spain. After training in London, I discovered my real interest in movement practise and research. The act of exploring one's body through imagination and physical sensations led me to travel to Tel Aviv, Israel. I started the Gaga teacher training programme which I am currently part of. Gaga is an essential tool in my own creative work: it allows me to open up new possibilities, not only in the moving body, but also in a philosophical approach.

I grew up in Kent, England, now I'm living between London and Leamington Spa. I feed my practise from the emotions, nerves and sensations I experience; cultivating honesty and vulnerability.

I grew up in Israel and Germany and ever since, I have lived and danced in many countries. Recently I graduated from Trinity Laban in London, and I am now starting a new dance(y) chapter in Portugal. I want to use my work as a performer/choreographer to shake up the way we see, think and move our bodies and other bodies. I want to use dance to collectively escape fixed points.

I am currently living in Pamplona, Spain, continuing my dance training at La Faktoria Choreographic Center. I am extremely interested in improvisation as a tool for creation and composition and will therefore participate in David Zambrano’s 60 days with 60 dancers. When improvising, I enjoy the possibility of seeing the world and its momentary composition as if for the first time. I am inspired by the power of detaching myself from intention,

allowing myself to be a child and creating with chance and spontaneity.

I am originally from Winchester, England, now living in Copenhagen, Denmark. For me, art is an investigative exploration towards understanding and I believe movement offers discoveries unavailable through any other medium. Through this I aim to give the audience something to talk about and the world to listen to, for if I could say it, I would have no need to dance it.

I am interested in visually feasting the eye. Dance has also always been there and it feels good to move. I studied an art foundation and after, Contemporary Dance. I'm interested in the act of becoming something 'other', reimagining the way the body can be presented, the marrying of movement, art and design to create new feelings of 'unusual'.
