What I liked

The song at the end was an absolute stand-out – committed, truly heart wrenching and palpable from the back row.

What I didn't like

n/a

My overall impression

Arianna explores a moment in Janis Joplins life that is full of inner conflict, temptation and the need for artistic expression. Arianna plays her with deep physicality, commitment and honest exploration. It is an interesting moment in Janis’ life, ending with her hesitant choice to launch into the spotlight. A unique and heartfelt piece.
