OPIS

Through interweaving dance and dialogue “Material Bodies” looks at the relationship between amputees and their limbs, exploring how a prosthetic limb can be more like a piece of jewellery, an unpredictable friend, a dance companion, or a part of you. The short dance-documentary brings to life people’s experiences of living with disability by focusing on four amputees’ sensory response to the world, with a focus on how architecture and design can affect your physical and emotional life.
