Lisa Nelson is a choreographer, improvisational performer, videographer, collaborative artist, editor, publisher, and educator who explores the role of the senses in the performance and observation of movement. Improvisational dance, with inherent values of collaboration, dialogue, and flexible survival strategies (both biological and cultural), has been at the core of her artistic research. Her practice of Tuning Scores is an approach to real-time editing and communication, and posits the imagination as a sixth sense.
