In her new film, Maelstrom Under Glass, artist Alexandrina Hemsley explores the intimate landscapes of the body to offer up dynamic spaces of repair.
The DaDaFest 2020 event is free and held online 27 November-3 December, starts 7pm. More details to follow.
Vivid layers of movement and bio-mythographical texts speak to retrieving oneself from sites of harm. These layerings evoke a reclaiming of interior texture; evoking re-embodiment after prolonged dissociation, inner storms, intersectional subjectivity as sites of marbling, and the complicated shine of a body meeting itself once more.
Maelstrom Under Glass is the first film project of newly formed company Yewande 103 led by choreographer and writer Alexandrina Hemsley.
