"defies category" - The Wall Street Journal
A neuroscientist invites an artist to speak at a medical conference on PTSD, trauma, and the brain. During her talk, she reads a letter she wrote to her childhood sexual abuser, igniting a dance-and-music-centric journey into her psychological landscape, illustrating the nonlinearity of memory and transformation.
Secondary Dominance, is a hybrid biographical expression / documentary / dance-centric music video exploring an artist’s disentanglement from childhood sexual trauma.
Born as a musical album, then morphed into a staged work + music videos, Secondary Dominance has transformed into a feature film.
