How do we define ourselves in relation to our biology, DNA, history, and aging?
Inheritance: A Litany is a journey both personal and universal, by acclaimed dancer, choreographer, and singer Janis Brenner. She inherited her father's wavy hair and sarcasm, her mother's singing voice and fragile bones, but also a lifetime of their belongings, thoughts, and ways of being in the world. Together they reveal moments of a family's history and a daughter's path.
Inheritance: A Litany is the winner of the 2018 awards for Best Production, Best Composer (Jerome Begin) and Best Lighting Design (Mitchell Bogard) from the United Solo Theatre Festival Off Broadway and the 2019 Critics Choice Award from All About Solo Publication.
"'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."
