"Brenner tops it all with The Mind-Stuff Variations, a clever movement-and-spoken word piece... with the theorizing of psychologist William James. At the core, I find a complex portrait of an artist struggling to define herself, to buffer and hold her center against external and internalized flak, and that's profoundly moving."

"The harmony of music and movement in “Variations” was atmospheric rather than dramatic. Still, Brenner’s intellect and humor, her dancers’ discipline and the satisfyingly complex music made the evening a cultural pleasure."
