Janis Brenner in "Inheritance: A Litany" at The National Arts Club
Janis Brenner & Dancers
Janis Brenner returns to a "live" performance of the multi-award-winning Inheritance: A Litany at the historic National Arts Club in NYC. A journey, both personal and universal, the one-woman show (with surprise guest) is a non-linear narrative, dance-opera-play and comic drama examining and honoring the parent-child realtionship over the course of a lifetime. The work is the winner of the 2018 Best Production, Best Composer (Jerome Begin) and Best Lighting Design (Mitchell Bogard) Awards from the United Solo Theatre Festival Off Broadway and the 2019 Critics Choice Award from All About Solo publication. *A Post-Performance discussion follows the performance.
"Inheritance: A Litany is a show of the moment. We need artists like Ms. Brenner now in this world, as she crosses genres, asks hard questions, and brings a gentleness and tenderness to her rendering of parents who were equal parts loving and exasperating, protecting and needy, known and misunderstood. We emerge emboldened, ready to create our own litanies, ready for family voices to speak." — Cynthia Darling, All About Solo
