Innovative Austrian choreographer Chris Haring has been pushing the definitions of dance as visual art performance through the years with his company Liquid Loft. Known for his use of digital media, video, and art installation, Haring can masterfully adapt and transform any space into a performance space. He draws inspiration for movement from all possible sources. Haring spoke with ICONS about how he has built a company based on artistic collaboration and how he adapts his vast source of inspiration into movement.
