Today my guest is the inestimable Liz Lerman. Listeners may mostly be familiar with Liz through her Critical Response Process, which is in use around the world as a system for managing the feedback process around new work. We get into her current thinking around this work, first developed when she was making work through her company, Dance Exchange. Liz is now a freelance dance and theater maker and educator and was the originator of an ambitious multi-institutional project commemorating the Civil War—a project still underway. Participating groups include Alliance Theater with Emory University, Arena Stage with George Washington University (where Liz's piece The Healing Wars recently premiered), Baltimore's Center Stage with University of Maryland, and A.R.T with Harvard University.
