Witches, Trials, & Exhibitions! Liz Lerman’s new evening-length dance-theater piece, Wicked Bodies, wonders about the persistence across time and culture of old crones, evil stepmothers, and the use of the body as a source of fear by governments and institutions. Why is some knowledge celebrated, some criminalized, and some erased altogether? In the presence of magic both old and new, drones as familiars, and a surprising collection of witches, audiences will make their way through a restless story and a smashing of worlds. The tour calls for (though does not require) deep engagement. Premieres Fall 2020/Spring 2021.

Estimated artist fee: no single performances, $65,000/week
