Sec Dom Feature Poster - 4 (w SS embedded) 2 .jpg

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 non-linearity 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.
