Chris Haring

* 1970 Born 1970 in Austria. Worked with international companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre (London), Nikolais/Luis Dance Cie (USA), man act (GB), Nigel Charnock (GB), pilottanzt, Willi Dorner, a.o. With the media artist and composer Klaus Obermaier he developed and performed the videodance performances D.A.V.E. and VIVISECTOR shown all over Europe, Asia, USA and Australia. One of his main influences for his performances, such as Fremdkörper (nominated as Best Performance at Biennale de la Danse in Lyon 2004) is science fiction films and the human body as a cybernetic landscape.

As the artistic director of Liquid Loft, he choreographed internationally successful pieces such as Kind of Heroes (Burgtheater Vienna, 2005), My Private Bodyshop (Tanzquartier Vienna, 2005) and Running Sushi (ImPulsTanz, 2006). In 2007, the Posing Project Series, Posing Project A - The Art of Wow and Posing Project B - The Art of Seduction (Golden Lion at the Biennale di Venezia), were developed. The installation Posing Project C (The Art of Garfunkel) completed the trilogy at ImpulsTanz Vienna in 2008. Also together with Liquid Loft he created the opening performance for the Austrian Pavillion at the EXPO in Zaragoza (2008). He choreographed for international groups such as the Jin Xing Dance Theatre (China Project / Lovely Liquid Lounge, 2009) and Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo (Sacre: The Rite Thing, 2010). The latest work, Talking Head (2010), deals with the identification and self-exposure of our current social media online world.
