Aynsley Vandenbroucke AND

In And, Aynsley Vandenbroucke uses experimental literary devices to create a series of live, three-dimensional essays. She plays with 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.

Some words that tussle for prominence in the piece are: art, life, teaching, body, marriage, knowing, divorce, friendship, contradiction, form, home, house, community, uncertainty, gentleness, question, power, sex, dance.

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. She co-founded Mount Tremper Arts and served as co-curator there until 2014. Vandenbroucke teaches at Princeton University and is obsessed with the relationships between reading, writing, learning to live, and making dance.
