About the Artist

Montana von Fliss (Seattle) received a 2009 GAP to pay artist wages, and boost the marketing budget in an effort to reach a wider audience. “Cancer: The Musical!” is a 90-minute original solo comedic theatre piece about death, loss, and recovery from grief. It revolves around her dad’s affliction with cancer, the experience being his sole caregiver, and the eventual grief from his passing. As a framework for the experience, Montana uses the scientific method to try and find answer to the question: How do you measure loss?
