The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has funded the Green Music Center to commission Wicked Bodies (Sonoma) by Liz Lerman. It is an evening-length, dance-theater piece that 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 institutions. Lerman and her company will create this piece with SSU faculty and students, as well as members of the surrounding communities, and the premiere will take place at Green Music Center.
