Alexandrina has been performing and choreographing in London internationally since 2009. Her practice voices her experiences within performative environments through an interdisciplinary process of attempting to undo structural and internalised marginalisation and colonialism.
Engaging with the wider concern of bringing attention to subjectivity and multiplicity over objectification, Alexandrina believes in dance & the body as a site for expressing felt & embodied politics. It is a life long project.
The forms her artistic work takes frequently morph in order to present her concerns within shifting frames and contexts. She make dances, videos, self-produces and writes. She is interested in liminal spaces, connectivity, fracturing, displacement and emotionality. She is continually attempting to conjure intersecting, gentle noise amidst oppressive silencing.
Alexandrina’s works have intercepted live art, dance, dance for camera, dance criticism and visual art.
She collaborates with Jamila Johnson-Small as part of Project O (2011 onwards), Rosie Heafford and Helena Webb (2012 onwards) on Dad Dancing and Seke Chimutengwende (2016 onwards) on a new piece of work Black Holes. Her work has been commissioned by and presented at Sadler’s Wells, Battersea Arts Centre, Southbank Centre and The Yard Theatre amongst others.
