Led by dancer, choreographer, singer, and artistic director Janis Brenner, the seven-member Janis Brenner & Dancers conveys a myriad of stories through movement in Five Decades – an evening of both retrospection and celebration that reconnects generations past with the present. Featuring works from the 1960s to the present, Five Decades highlights music and dance legends such as Meredith Monk’s seminal solo Break (1964) and two solo works from Murray Louis’ historical Figura (1978), to name a few. The fifth and current decade is represented by the world premiere of Dancing in Absentia; an homage to the friends, colleagues and well-known artists within the dance community lost to the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
