MUSIC

Thani has been writing music for as long as they can remember and is currently working on their first album!  They draw inspiration from the work of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Anaïs Mitchell, and other pop and folk artists. 

 

Thani began composing for musical theatre while studying at the University of Michigan, where they graduated with a Minor in Musical Theatre Composition under the guidance of Prof. Lynne Shankel.  They hope to use their unique voice as a queer, biracial, non-binary writer, to create space in musical theatre for intersectional identities and underrepresented stories.

Keep your eyes and ears peeled for a new song dropping this summer!

"This Little Room" from The Girl With the Boots

Music and Lyrics by Thani Brant and Wilson Plonk 

Vocalists: Erica Ito and Ella Oleson

THE LAUGH OF THE MEDUSA

THE LAUGH OF THE MEDUSA is as much a prayer as it is a meditation. It is loosely based upon Greek mythology and inspired by the 1975 feminist essay of the same name by Hélène Cixous. MEDUSA uses these materials as a springboard to investigate trans identity, artistic identity, gender-based violence, god complexes and cult in our society.
