Join us for an online screening series, followed by a Friday Q&A via Zoom.

On April 16, 5pm -Post-screening Discussion with Dancer Bill Shannon and Filmmakers Sachi Cunningham and Vayabobo


Dir. Sachi Cunningham and Vayabobo, 2020, 98 min

Dance, art, performance, and disability politics converge in this entertaining and enlightening portrait of Bill Shannon, an internationally renowned artist, break dancer, and skate punk, who wields his crutches as tools of expression and instruments for audience provocation. The film journeys through a decade of intimate access and a lifetime of archival footage that includes Shannon’s stage work for Cirque du Soleil, the Sydney Opera House, the Tate Modern, and the Chicago MOCA. Join us for a conversation with Shannon and filmmakers Sachi Cunningham and Vayabobo.

Cosponsored by Theater.
