Liz Lerman

Dance Exchange founder Liz Lerman has been described by the Washington Post as "the source of an epochal revolution in the scope and purposes of dance art." Her essays reflect upon her lifelong quest to use dance as a vehicle to foster community across barriers of race, age, faith, and culture. Lerman is the recipient of numerous honors, including a 2002 MacArthur "Genius Grant" Fellowship and a 2011 United States Artists Ford Fellowship. Her work has been commissioned by the Lincoln Center, American Dance Festival, Harvard Law School, and the Kennedy Center among many others. Lerman will discuss and sign her collected essays, Hiking the Horizontal: Field Notes from a Choreographer (Wesleyan Univ., $29.95).

This event is free and open to the public. For more information on this and other public events, visit the Arts Club of Washington website.
