Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

I’m a reporter, whom do I contact to set up an interview with Liz?

Please send your request to admin@lizlerman.com.

Can I interview Liz for my project at school/university?

Unfortunately Liz’s time is incredibly limited between her faculty responsibilities at Arizona State University and her own projects. There is a lot of writing by and about Liz available on the web and in books, which we encourage you to pursue.

How can I bring Liz to my institution for a keynote/lecture/class?

Liz’s availability is primarily for keynotes; through 2018-19 we are also seeking presenters who can further Liz’s work on Wicked Bodies through customized panels and other investigations. Please contact admin@lizlerman.com to begin the conversation about what you’re looking for.

How can I get Liz to come perform?

We love that you want Liz’s performance work in your community! Liz’s older repertory (pre 2011) lives with Dance Exchange; her current repertory (Healing Wars and the in-development work Wicked Bodies) requires a presenter. If you’re a presenter, contact us at admin@lizlerman.com with your query! If you’re not a presenter, please do contact your local arts presenter/college to ask them to invite Liz… the more people requesting her presence, the more likely it is that she will get the support she needs in order to come.

Does Liz offer classes?

Not regularly, as her relationships with performers tend to develop over several years and multiple projects. When she does hold auditions, they will be listed on the calendar.

We would like to host Liz for a long-term residency. What do we need to do?
