Letters in the Dirt
About the Show:

You will find yourself in a dark place with a lot of other people. It is May 17, 2010.
Aiyana Mo'Nay Stanley-Jones is seven years old. Aiyana Mo'Nay Stanley-Jones is dead.
You will find that you've been given an object. The game is this:
Aiyana is new here. Use your object to help her realize where she is.

(Letters in the Dirt is an immersive, participatory journey through the memories of the late Aiyana Jones, shot and killed in 2010 by an officer during a botched police raid in Detroit on the wrong home. The piece strives to honor her, combining ritual, play, poetry, music, and group collaboration to explore the meaning of ownership and black joy, how symbols are made and used, different ways of being small, and the infinitude of blackness).
