Victoria Melody likes to join in. Her unusual ethnographic approach to art practice has found her living with pigeon fanciers and more recently learning to dance northern soul in stranger’s living rooms. This comedic and charming performance features a treasure trove of films, photos and paraphernalia alongside the moves and music of northern soul—a type of African American soul music popularized in Northern England from the mid 60s onwards. Directed by Ursula Martinez.
