Aynsley Vandenbroucke: AND (World Premiere)
One hour / Suitable for ages 18 years and older
In this new performance, Aynsley Vandenbroucke uses experimental literary devices to create a series of live, three-dimensional essays. She plays with the lines between fact and fiction, narrative and abstraction, legibility and complexity. She works with — and against — the role of formal structures in writing, moving, and making a life. Commissioning support made possible by the Jerome Foundation. Additional support provided by a Late Stage Stipend from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
Called “gifted” by The New Yorker and “an elegant sensitive thinker” by The New York Times, Aynsley Vandenbroucke has been making performance in NYC since 2000. Her work has been presented by The Chocolate Factory, Danspace Project, Dance New Amsterdam, the CUNY Graduate Center, and in San Francisco, Colorado, and Brazil, among others. She co-founded Mount Tremper Arts in the Catskills and served as co-curator there until 2014. She teaches at Princeton University and is obsessed with the relationships between reading, writing, learning to live, and making dance.
