Gravityless: A B-Boy Takes Flight

I have to admit that when I saw the title of the new dance film, Gravityless, I fully expected it to be something with high tech CGI visuals. Instead what I got from the piece by David Olkarny, was something far more subtle and uplifting at the same time. It’s a film which follows b-boy dancer Karimbo around the city and countryside as he throws himself into almost gravity defying moves. As he hits the apex the film slows, revealing the poetry of each instance: Karimbo floats above sky scrapers, wooded glens, and sandy beaches in his dress pants, white shirt and thin black tie.
