Bill Shannon in ‘Work it Out’ RJD2 video

Bill Shannon is a dancer/media artist who was born with a degenerative hip condition where his legs cannot support his weight so he must use crutches to get around. He’s developed a personal style of skateboarding/breakdancing that implements the crutches.

Check out the RJD2 video featuring one continuous shot of Shannon in NYC:

There’s also a short doc on Shannon with more footage of his performance art:

    wow, that is seriously bad ass

    “how space and time and your presence intersect” - thats what i think of when i saw these videos - the music kind of brings that out…but you know what else i liked - the part about assumptions…

  3. Justin Says:

    it’s really interesting how prejudice doesn’t seem to apply when it’s in a positive form, like offering help to a person on crutches or even assuming a woman needs help carrying something (which I see as chivalrous and will continue to do, thank you very much).
