mayfield brooks & Tammy Nguyen

mayfield brooks and Tammy Nguyen work across multiple mediums and disciplines to explore history, memory, and change. brook’s movement-based practice, Improvising While Black, attends to and engages in “disorientation, dissent, wildness, ancestral healing, rest and repair.” Tammy Nguyen’s new book, O, shifts formally and temporally to trace the history of a smile, a family, a very deep cave.
