Janis Brenner has often paid tribute to her mentors and the artists who’ve inspired her.

Now 92Y asks her to switch direction and present artists whom she has mentored. Brenner met Helena Franzén in 1986 and encouraged her to choreograph. Franzén, an acclaimed artist in her native Scandinavia, presents the U. S. premiere of her solo, Trigger Point. Kun-Yang Lin met Brenner in his native Taiwan in the late ‘80s and later danced in her company for eight years. Now based in Philadelphia, he shows his solo, Moon Dance. Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen perform a duet from Barkin’s dance, Reflexive. Brenner met Barkin at UCLA in the early ‘90s and she and Selissen are long-time members of Brenner’s company. Lilja Ruriksdottir, the first Icelandic dancer to attend Juilliard (where she met Brenner in 2011) presents her dance Wait. Brenner herself contributes the premiere of Where-How-Why Trilogy. The new dance consists of three solos, performed by Esme Boyce, Sumaya Jackson and Brenner, which explore questions of place, relevance and the reasons for continuing on an artistic path.
