Director/Animator/Producer/Editor: Jo Meuris
A celebration of the human body in motion. The movements of dancers, traceurs, and acrobats are woven together in a symphony of animated figures that rejoices in the ability to defy gravity.
Jo Meuris holds a BFA in Animation from Concordia University (received in 1998) and an MFA in Film and Television from University of California, Los Angeles (received in 2010).
