… You tear my body with a look… ruptured, refracted surfaces 
A sad, foggy reckoning. 
My hot rage. Bound, mute glass.
Maelstrom Under Glass, calls upon several strands of intimacy as pathways to trauma-healing to offer up dynamic spaces of repair. Alexandrina’s vivid, multidisciplinary layers of movement, bio-mythographical texts and collage speak to retrieving oneself from sites of harm. 

This film is 12m27s.

BSL, sound captioned and audio described versions available.
