In 1992, mayfield brooks had a “missed connection” with queer ancestor Marsha “Pay It No Mind” Johnson, when mayfield was 21 and Marsha 46. Based on danced and written love notes, Letters to Marsha explores the weight of bodies and history, and the artist’s own evolution as a Black, non-binary queer connecting specters of Black queer death to memory, movement, sound, humor, and pathos.

“brooks’ movements may be improvised, but the world that they create is carefully curated.” —Brooklyn Rail
