Inhabit was Lingo’s first non-proscenium work and was designed for an audience of 50-100. The audience became guests and the dancers givers in a part party, part performance event lasting just under two hours. Lingo performers hosted the evening, greeting their guests as they arrived, offering a glass of wine and a tour of the space, ushering them from the debris of their day into the present.
Throughout the evening guests watched from any vantage point they choose while the dancers intertwined amongst them, easily slipping between their social and performer selves.
There was snacking, toasting, chatting and hosting in this part party, part dance. Offered as a risk and a gift, Inhabit was a social art-feast.
