4/5

Review

Directed by Tabatha Mudra and Pioneer Winter, ‘Gimp Gait’ is an experimental dance film that explores the resolute of a disabled dancer and her fight against social stigma and incapability. The film stars Marjorie Burnett, who, despite her cerebral palsy, manages to carry out a captivating dance performance. Pioneer Winter co-stars as Burnett’s dance partner. The awe-inspiring short delves into themes of diversity, disability, creativity and sexuality. A powerful piece of filmmaking that will educate, encourage and dispel stigmatization.

The 5-minute dance film opens with Marjorie and Pioneer entering a mirrored set-up. After Pioneer lifts her out of her wheel-chair, a galvanizing transformation occurs. The entire routine proudly showcases Marjorie’s physical abilities – with fiery and sexually-charged energy – in an attempt to eliminate preconceived judgment. Viewers will be enthralled by her conviction, artistry and sense of humor.

Tabatha Mudra (Director) and Pioneer Winter (Director/Choreographer/Dancer) have created a beautiful film that will enlighten its audience. Marjorie Burnett is an inspirational talent that strives with tenacity and resistance – well deserving of high acclaim. Pioneer’s execution and support is greatly commendable. Cinematography, sound and post-production are of a high production standard and quality, playing an important role in the routine and viewer engagement. A stellar film that mustn’t be overlooked. Highly recommended.
