"A Descent into the Maelström", Edgar Allan Poe's vertiginous short story of being swept into a huge and terrible whirlpool by a raging hurricane, transformed into a Musical Dance/Theatre piece by Philip Glass and collaborators, dancer/choreographer Molissa Fenley, set designer Eamon D'Arcy and theatre director Matthew Maguire.

In 1986 Mr. Glass was commissioned by the Australian Dance Theatre to create and bring a piece to the Adelaide Festival of Arts in Adelaide, Australia. He chose to write a piece based on the Edgar Allan Poe short story "A Descent into the Maelström" and invited his collaborators to participate.
