“Deeply inspirational…” —The New York Times

“Elegant…” —The Village Voice

2006 “Short-listed” for Oscar nomination: Short Documentary

It seems impossible—but after losing a leg to cancer, accomplished dancer Homer Avila returns to the stage without crutches, performing with Andrea Flores a duet choreographed by Alonzo King. The rehearsal process is fierce and tender. Solo or intertwined, Homer collaborates in his now “imperfect” body—and his “one-leggedness” turns into transcendent beauty.

Won numerous prestigious awards and played in over 120 venues worldwide
