The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange will present excerpts from its stage work "Small Dances About Big Ideas," with commentary from choreographer Liz Lerman at 7 p.m. Feb. 11 at the Michigan League Ballroom. This performance piece, combining movement, spoken word and documentary sound, premiered in 2005 at Harvard Law School. It takes a challenging look at mass violence, the scope of human compassion, and the capacity of the law to address genocide and other human atrocities. The free performance is offered in conjunction with Professor Ralph Williams's class Of Human Bonding. For more information call 769-0500. (Photo by Chris Randle)
