In And, Aynsley uses 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.

Commissioning support for And is made possible by the Jerome Foundation. And is also made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Additional support provided by a Late Stage Stipend from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, research grants from Princeton University, and residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Mount Tremper Arts, and Abrons Arts Center.
