Alejandro De Leon

Alejandro began his journey as a dance artist at an early age in the underground breakdance scene in Mexico City. Seeking formal training, he joined the National School of Contemporary Dance in Mexico and four years later, received a full scholarship to the School of American Ballet in New York City. Since then, he has had the chance to collaborate with choreographers such as Louise Bédard, José Navas, Lina Cruz and Sarah Bild as well as with the companies Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Hartford Ballet, Compañía Nacional de Danza of Mexico, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens and Cas Public

In parallel with his dance career, Alejandro has developed a rewarding trajectory as a filmmaker. He has created installations, documentaries and journalistic pieces for various production houses, choreographers, dramaturges, and music artists.

Alejandro is inspired by migrant narratives, cliches about underdeveloped countries, body memories and the ongoing chaos in the world. His work explores the intersection of visual, oral and physical storytelling.
