Choreographer Liz Lerman to take part in ICE residency

Liz Lerman  

Ideas for Creative Exploration will host dance choreographer and educator Liz Lerman for a weeklong residency. Lerman will present a lecture, “Hiking the Horizontal: Making Rules, Breaking Rules,” Nov. 1 at 4 p.m. in Room 248 of the Miller Learning Center.

A choreographer, performer, educator and writer, Lerman organizes highly collaborative works that cut across traditional disciplines and communities. In 1976, she founded the Washington, D.C.-based Dance Exchange, one the most innovative and creatively expansive dance companies in the world.  Her visit will include master classes in the dance department and a workshop based on her book Critical Response Process.

Lerman’s residency is sponsored by the Jane and Harry Willson Center for Humanities and Arts, the dance department, the theatre and film studies department, the Lamar Dodd School of Art and the Hugh Hodgson School of Music.
