Dance Faculty Rebecca Lazier speaks on “Performing Arts and Movement in the COVID Era”

Social distancing has devastated the performing arts and changed how we move through public spaces. In the June 18 episode of the Princeton podcast We Roar, Senior Lecturer in Dance Rebecca Lazier considers the impact on artists, theaters and venues, and how we’re all navigating a new concept of togetherness.

I definitely feel there’ll be a deeper appreciation, need, hunger for dance on many levels, on that very personal, I just need to be moving and moving my body, to I want to be going and seeing performances, to wanting to see dance in all of the spaces, not just theatrical spaces and site-specific spaces.
— Rebecca Lazier
