a celebration of bodies. sharing ways to move and be expressive
UNRESTRAINED combines movement from dance and parkour in an inclusive manner to demonstrate the strength we have as humans and the beauty in creating space for bodies of all types. This film centres around the unique and powerful body of Jess Dowdeswell who is a double amputee from the waist down. Her love of dance and movement is the way she expresses herself but she can find herself limited by the range of opportunities that she can engage with due to the world not being made to suit her. UNRESTRAINED embellishes her love for movement to create a duet with Ben Morley that has her swinging, catching and climbing, demonstrating the joy and freedom of movement, and showing that with thought, nothing is impossible.
