19 June 2013: film night – Routes: Dancing to New Orleans + director Q&A


‘As a DJ, people asked me where I learned to dance. I didn’t know so I went to find out’ – Alex Reuben

Commissioned by Arts Council England, Alex Reuben’s debut feature Routes: Dancing to New Orleans, is a road movie through the dance and music of the American Deep South.

Inspired by Harry Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music, Reuben’s film offers an idiosyncratic documentation of lesser-known forms of American culture and the extraordinary dancing Americans of the Deep South.  See the trailer here.

Alex Reuben has a background as a DJ and in art and design. Reuben’s films combine dance, music, politics and painting. They are characterised by their use of improvised sound and movement within architecture, a process he calls ‘choreogeography’.

Alex is currently featured on the BBC and ACE arts website, ‘The Space’.
