"Inheritance: A Litany" by Janis Brenner & Dancers
Janis Brenner & Dancers
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the United Solo Theatre Festival at Theater Row Off-Broadway, acclaimed multidisciplinary artist Janis Brenner will open the festival with "Encore/Best Of" performances of her award-winning, "Inheritance: A Litany" - winner of 2018 Best Production, Best Composer and Best Lighting Design awards and three 5-Star "Critics' Choice" reviews.
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 and even thoughts, revealing a family's story. A poetic narrative, a dance-opera-play, and a comic drama by internationally acclaimed artist Janis Brenner.
"There’s truly nothing like it. It’s hard not to empathize with 'Inheritance' and think of one’s own parents as Brenner explores her relationship to hers. Funny, clever, tragic and honest, 'Inheritance' is an absolute triumph. Don’t miss it.”
— James Bartholomew, All About Solo
