Liz Walker, HAA Class of ’11, has been performing as a soloist with the Los Angeles Ballet for seven years since graduating. She now maintains an artistic practice on the side, with performances scheduled with the Goethe Institut Boston on April 1 and 2, 2022. The work is a site-specific dance piece created in collaboration with Boston Dance Theater and the musicians of Sound Icon. Commissioned by the Goethe-Institut Boston in 2019 to coincide with the reopening of their building following extensive renovations, it draws the audience’s attention to, the obvious and understated elements of the historical building’s architecture through the techniques of improvisation, Dance Theater, and contemporary choreography. The work was made to inspire audiences to wander through the building and discover the building’s various spaces in a new way, through the illumination of live performance. The curated live music reflects the Goethe-Institut Boston’s mission to foster international cultural dialogue between Germany and New England offering platforms for exchange and connection. Details of these free performances can be found here.

Liz has also been named a 2022 Artist-in-Residence at Mount Auburn Cemetery, and will be choreographing and dancing in upcoming performances on site at Mount Auburn's grounds. There will be a preview of her performance "Dance of Arrival" on May 15 at 4 PM.
