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.

WHO INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?

- Sara S. - I find myself very inspired by a great piece of music, a good story- something exciting, mysterious and suspenseful - can be a source of inspiration.
- Sean H. - I found recent inspiration in the work of Cari Ann Shim Sham*, whose work expands ideas of what is possible in the world of performance. Using video and projection, she helps create worlds that are vivid and refreshingly unique.
- Truly B. - I am inspired by my children and their ability to create without caring about how it is received. They create movement from the heart; their joy in dance is utterly contagious!
