Liquid Loft


Liquid Loft is an internationally active dance company based in Vienna. It was jointly founded in 2005 by choreographer Chris Haring, dancer Stephanie Cumming, musician Andreas Berger and dramaturge Thomas J. Jelinek.

Liquid Loft create stage performances and installations at the intersection of contemporary dance and visual arts, with the sound environment and musical composition playing an integral part of the creative development. In 2007 Liquid Loft was awarded the Golden Lion for “Best Performance” for the piece “Posing Project B – The Art of Seduction” at the Biennale di Venezia. Science Fiction and the reception of cyborg theory count as the major sources of inspiration for their work. In their performances Liquid Loft reflect, among other things, on the change in our perception through visual media and the everyday use of technology. Their choreography shifts perspectives, isolates gestural and verbal patterns from their familiar contexts, and aims to integrate the outside view of the body into the movements. The bespoke acoustic environments are specifically created to open spaces for thought and movement and so provide the dancers with new, surprising possibilities for the recombination of their original choreographic elements.

Liquid Loft’s productions have been staged at international venues and at festivals such as Rencontres Chorégraphiques Saint-Denis, Théâtre National de Chaillot Paris, Impulstanz Vienna International Dance Festival, Tanzquartier Wien, Burgtheater Wien, Southbank Center London, MODAFE Seoul, Künstlerhaus Mousonturm Frankfurt, Julidans Amsterdam, Suzanne Dellal Center Tel Aviv, Trafo Budapest, La Bâtie-Festival de Genève, Biennale di Venezia, The Place London, Tanzhaus NRW Düsseldorf, Biennale de la Danse Lyon, Kampnagel Hamburg, Melkweg Amsterdam, World Expo Zaragoza, Shanghai Dance Festival, Opera de Monte Carlo and more.
