INHERITANCE: A LITANY by the multi-award winning interdisciplinary artist Janis Brenner

Inheritance: A Litany” is a personal narrative, dance-opera, non-linear play, and comic drama — deeply intimate, and yet, universal.

A journey into the myriad ways a daughter “became” her late parents. She inherited her father’s nose, her mother’s singing voice, 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. Revealing aspects of a family’s story as well as the nature of how we become who we are, the interdisciplinary tour-de-force also uncovers what makes us each unique, complicated, and fragile human beings.

WINNER: 2018 United Solo Theatre Festival Awards for Best Production, Best Composer, and Best Lighting Design. Winner of the 2019 Critics’ Award from All About SOLO in NYC.

…this woman brings together her formidable creative and performance talents to remind us of the magnitude of love’s fleeting gifts, and how we mustn’t take their preciousness for granted.”
