Hi and welcome to the website. And welcome to my new blog! Please feel free to visit often.

Update September 1, 2015
Here's a snapshot of what I've been up to:

-- Critical Response Process workshops at Yorkshire Dance (England), Tisch (NYC), Marlboro College (VT), in Baltimore, at Detroit's CultureSource, and with the League of Chicago Theatres

-- Keynote addresses at the triennial Conservatoire Conference in London hosted by the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, at Hampshire College for the launch of the "Ethics and the Common Good" project, for playwrights at the WriteNow conference, in Chicago at Donors Forum, and again in Chicago at the Americans for the Arts' Annual Convention alongside Hideo Mabuchi (professor of physics, Stanford University) NOTE: Liz and Hideo's part starts at 24:30.

-- Workshops with the National Youth Orchestra (along with my marvelous colleague James Ross, of UMD), at Rutgers, at Holy Cross, at UMD-College Park, and also with social workers and counselors, APAP Leadership Fellows, and arts grad students.

And most recently I spent a week in New York City in preparation for the final run of Healing Wars this fall at La Jolla Playhouse. I'm grateful for the opportunity to continue to shape and deepen this piece. It's going to be an exciting run—I hope you'll join us if you're in the Southern California area.

Check my calendar page, and if you're in or around DC, you can see someone else's view of bits our Healing Wars development process at the AFI screening of Nina Gilden Seavey's "Parables of War". If you go, let me know what you think! I've spent my life making what might be called "non-fiction dance," yet to be the subject of a documentary film was full of surprises.
