These video works have not been developed by HAVOC but have been gathered by our team, as valuable resource documents for the professional dance sector. Included is work by Irish dance artists, as well as international artists, symposia, interviews, promotional clips and stuff we find absolutely fascinating.

‘I think the world is demanding that (horizontal practice) from most people. Most people are going to be Hybridized, most people are going to have multiple interests and they’re going to want to expand themselves’ – Liz Lerman
