Jumps evolve into joyous flight and split-second connections are luxuriously lengthened in this short dance film featuring disabled dancers Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson. Revel in Your Body originated as a creative concept when the dancers posted online a slow-motion iPhone video of them jumping on a trampoline while strapped into their wheelchairs. Shot on the Phantom Camera on an empty parking rooftop with the Atlanta skyline in the background on the campus of Georgia Tech, this film takes high-stakes wheelchair choreography into the site-specific playgrounds of parking ramps, metal railings, and breathtaking blue sky.
