Program: Inheritance: A Litany
Janis Brenner Website

Inheritance: A Litany is a journey into the myriad ways a daughter “became” her late parents. She inherited her father’s nose, her mother’s singing voice, her father’s sarcasm, mother’s fragile bones… as well as a lifetime of objects, lessons, and even thoughts and ways of being in the world. This poetic narrative, dance-opera-play, and comic drama by internationally acclaimed artist Janis Brenner reveal aspects of a family’s story as well as the nature of how we become who we are and uncovers what makes us each unique, complicated, and fragile human beings. 

“Funny, clever, tragic, and honest, Inheritance is an absolute triumph. Don’t miss it.” -James Bartholomew, All About Solo
