Crutch provides an intimate look into award-winning dancer and cutting-edge performance artist Bill Shannon,” reads the official synopsis. “Born with a degenerative hip condition, Shannon developed a way to express himself through dancing and skateboarding on crutches. Two decades of exclusive access, plus a lifetime of archival footage, depict Shannon’s extraordinary journey through medical odyssey, his struggles with chronic pain, as well as the evolution of his crutch dancing and skating. As Shannon rises to become a world-renowned performance artist he transforms from an angry skate punk to an international hero.”

Check out the exclusive clip below:

Crutch also dives into Bill’s provocative street performances, in which he exposes the hidden world of assumptions disabled people encounter in public, on a daily basis,” the synopsis continues. “While the film questions his early exploitation of strangers’ good Samaritan impulses, it also marvels at Bill’s ability to create solutions and empower others to navigate similar challenges. From childhood ‘cripple’ to international provocateur, Crutch is an emotional story of a one-of-a-kind artist’s struggle to be understood.”
