What happens when a molecular virologist, an evolutionary biologist and a hip-hop dancer visit a laboratory? We’ll find out when dance legend Liz Lerman, choreographer and MacArthur Fellow, brings her students and her craft out into the open at the Biodesign Institute.
Lerman is leading the dance collaboration, engaging tools of movement, performance and media with the students in her “Animating Research” class.
“When we think about the role of the artist in society, a central theme of Liz’s work at ASU will focus on equity, inclusion and the need to embrace and advance all creative voices in America.” — Stephen J. Tepper, dean, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts
