Julian Henriques

Drama and Performance in the Reggae Dancehall

Wed, Apr 6, 2005 4:30 PM

In this talk, filmmaker Julian Henriques investigates the sound system session—as a dramatic stage, dance arena, and performance space for sound system clashes and extemporized DJ competitions.
This talk includes illustrative stills and clips from Henriques's drama and documentary films, including We the Ragamuffin, Babymother, and Firelinks.

Julian Henriques is the producer and director of television dramas and documentaries including Derek Wolcott: Poet of the Island, The Green Man, States of Exile, and Dictating Terms (produced by BBC Music & Arts), and Carimac (produced by the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication, Jamaica), among others. He is currently a lecturer at Goldsmiths College, Department of Media and Communications, and he resides in London, England.

Presented by Ohio State's Department of Theatre and The Syndicate (Graduate Student Theatre Association). Cosponsored by the Wexner Center.
