Revel In Your Body is a dance short film directed by Katherine Helen Fisher and starring Alice Sheppard and Laurel Lawson of Kinetic Light.

Kinetic Light’s stunning choreography leaps in glorious slow motion into the site-specific playgrounds of concrete ramps, metal railings, stairs, and breathtaking open blue sky, revealing the joy of flight on wheels.

Total run time: 6 minutes

"Sheppard and Lawson's collaborative work have always represented, for me, innovation, expansiveness, and possibility, powerful expressions of sensuality and joy. In just a little over five minutes, this film captures all of that and in abundance." July 2019: Eva Yaa Asantewaa
