Choreographer Liz Lerman on pandemic: 'Our imaginations come to us at times of stress and need'

It’s been three years since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and so much has changed since — debates over masking and vaccines; measurements about how close was too close to be to someone; concerns about isolation; questions about whether people would ever shake hands again.

The Show talked to people who’ve been thinking about these and other questions related to what’s changed since the start of the pandemic and what has mostly stayed the same.

Liz Lerman, a choreographer and Arizona State University professor, has been thinking about the pandemic in terms of creativity. The Show caught up with her to talk about what kinds of thoughts go through her mind when she thinks about the last three years.
