​Inspired by powerful and grotesque images of women’s bodies over multiple historic periods, Liz Lerman’s new dance theater piece Wicked Bodies will be performed at YBCA from October 28-30, 2022.

Wicked Bodies reflects on many issues centering women and their bodies that have persisted for centuries: fear of bodily functions, horror at what knowledge women might possess, disgust at the way women carry on their daily existence, and the crumbling of beauty as women age.​

Following its premiere on April 14, 2022 at the Green Music Center in Sonoma, Wicked Bodies toured to Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival August 10-13, 2022 and will then tour to Arizona State University’s ASU Gammage September 24, 2022 before landing at YBCA.
