Shape & Momentum: Making Art in Restless Times | T

Shape & Momentum: Making Art in Restless Times | T


We are delighted to welcome back Liz Lerman, American choreographer, performer, writer, educator and speaker.

Liz will talk and engage in discussion about the ways in which we think about our work, how we frame our work for others, and how we embark on the work itself.

From a piece about her days as a go-go dancer in 1974 to a recent investigation of origins that included putting dancers in the tunnels of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Liz has spent the past four decades making her artistic research personal, funny, intellectually vivid, and up to the minute.

A key aspect of her artistry is opening her process to various publics from shipbuilders to physicists, construction workers to ballerinas, resulting in both research and outcomes that are participatory, relevant, urgent, and usable by others.

Liz will be in conversation with other key leaders from the dance sector. Check back for full programme of speakers.
