Liz Lerman is a choreographer, performer, writer, educator, and speaker, and the recipient of honors including a 2002 MacArthur Genius Grant and a 2017 Jacob's Pillow Dance Award. Key to her artistry is opening her process to various publics, resulting in research and outcomes that are participatory, urgent, and usable. Lerman founded Dance Exchange in 1976 and led it until 2011. Her recent work, Healing Wars, toured the U.S. She teaches critical response process, creative research, the intersection of art and science, and the building of narrative within dance at institutions such as Harvard, Yale School of Drama, and others. Her third book is Hiking the Horizontal: Field Notes from a Choreographer. As of 2016, she is a professor in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
