A digital adaptation of Liz Lerman's
Critical Response Process


respond_ has been developed by Yorkshire Dance, the University of Leeds, Breakfast Creatives and Liz Lerman after being selected by Nesta, Arts Council England and Arts & Humanities Research Council as one of over 60 partnerships to receive funding from the £7 million Digital R&D Fund for the Arts.


The respond_ team is testing whether an online adaptation of Liz Lerman’s Critical Response Process can deepen audiences’ understanding of and engagement with dance and their empathy with artists; whether it can expand the audience reach of new dance works; and whether it can benefit the creation and development process of new artworks.

The research team will be testing the potential of digital communications technologies to enhance the audience experience and demystify the creative process.
