Following her keynote lecture in the Stanley Cafe, MacArthur Fellow, choreographer, writer, educator, and Hancher favorite Liz Lerman stopped by the Hancher Presents studios to say a little more about the topic of Hiking the Horizontal: Trans-disciplinary Practices for Tackling Questions Big and Small. Lerman's lecture was part of "Me and We: Collective Acts Toward Sustainability" - a collaboration between the UI Department of Dance and the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies. Liz Lerman is a choreographer, performer, writer, teacher, and speaker. She 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 everyone from shipbuilders to physicists, construction workers to ballerinas, resulting in both research and experiences that are participatory, relevant, urgent, and usable by others.
