Sister Sylvester: Drinking Brecht

Performance artist and filmmaker (and occasional amateur microbiologist) Sister Sylvester works with new technologies to make cross-species collaborations, essay films, and lecture performances. In Drinking Brecht, she brings her large-scale bio-art performance to Krannert Center audiences. Based on DNA extracted from a hat that was formerly in the costume collection of Bertolt Brecht’s Berliner Ensemble theatre company, Drinking Brecht is an interactive evening involving DNA extraction, science lectures, and genetically infused cocktails.

If you believe in the life-affirming experiences that Krannert Center and the performing arts at Illinois make possible, please make a gift: advancement@krannertcenter.illinois.edu, KrannertCenter.com/Give, or faa.illinois.edu/giving.
