Monitor Lizards was made to travel. Over the course of three years, Weis and Scott Heron presented this work at performing arts centers and universities in the United States and Macedonia. The show combines several works into an evening event and segments varied from place to place. Some of the pieces performed on this tour included: A Bad Spot Hurts Like Mad, Dummy, The Dunking Booth and Roof Dance.

At most venues, Weis and Heron hosted a series of workshops with community members. Weis selected a technical set up, such as Half & Half for the workshop, and then cast local dancers to perform alongside Heron and herself in the main event.
