About the Performance
J struggles to accept her father’s death when so much of their relationship feels unresolved. Hoping to hold on to one more minute with him, J dives into a metaphysical cactus garden where she meets her dad for the painting lessons and conversations they never got to have. Can they heal and paint together, or will the pain of losing a parent stand in the way of her finding herself?
Content Warning: Painting Lessons contains discussion and depiction of death, grief, cancer, coming out, and complicated family relationships.
