Kickstart Sunday: CRUTCH

  • Save
This week’s Kickstart Sunday pick comes to us from directors Sachi Cunningham and Chandler Evans and their upcoming documentary Crutch, taking a look at the life of Bill Shannon, a disabled skate punk and break dancer who uses his crutches as tools in his art. I remember catching some Youtube videos of Shannon’s dancing, and I was pretty impressed to say the least, so I’m very interested in learning more about his story.

This Kickstarter campaign currently has 26 days remaining, with a goal of $100,000, so be sure to click here and send a donation today! Take a look below for more information.


CRUTCH chronicles the life of Bill Shannon, an internationally renowned artist, break dancer and skate punk, who wields his crutches as tools of expression and weapons of provocation.

A decade of exclusive access, plus a lifetime of archival footage, depict Shannon from his early years as a disabled child who refused to sit idle and watch able-bodied kids play, to his rise as an award-winning dancer and cutting-edge performance artist whose work finds outlet at prestigious venues worldwide, including Cirque du Soleil, the Sydney Opera House, the Tate Modern, and the Chicago MOCA.
