Hearts and Minds

“Small Dances About Big Ideas,” commissioned by Harvard Law School and created by choreographer Liz Lerman, uses motion, sound and characters to portray humanity’s response – or non-response – to genocide, whether it be the Holocaust or present atrocities in Darfur. A Covenant Foundation grant to the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange allows the dance company to take the piece to twelve communities across the country, reaching and challenging an audience of thousands to confront an uncomfortable and often-unaddressed issue.
