Video for Wonder Woman song with main premise on Feminine Conciousness depicted through music, dance & costume for NYC Artist Ms. Rey.
Photocredit: KINEMATIK Dance Theater Website: www.kinematkdance.com Wonder Woman Video Treatment: Oneness in feminine consciousness is depicted by the similarity in attire by all female dancers. By all dancers & mannequins wearing all black attire and the same black bob cut wigs. Mid way through video individuality of each female begins emerging through the change of color while maintaining the common thread of femininity (same outfits and bob wigs). Video begins with Ms. Rey in the woods, dressed as a Nomadic Traveler / Female warrior archetype. Ms. Rey is accompanied by her companion a wolf/dog. The happen upon a door in the middle of the woods. The door is free-standing or on the ground or pressed up against a tree. It is the doorway to another dimension of consciousness. Ms. Rey enters this dark mysterious alternate reality. It is dark, with touches of gold, reds, browns..etc..with a big clock on the back wall. Throughout the space are mannequins and dancers simulating mannequins. Pieces of mannequin limbs, arms, some dances with 4 arms and extra legs. They are all posed in the space which is railroad style layout. There are barricades made of black caution tape that the viewer can see through. Some of the dancers and limbs are entangled in these barricades. There is smoke on the floor and in the air. The music starts and their movements are very isolated and abstract. Ms. Rey touches or taps each dancer as she begins to walk from the back of the space towards the front and thus bringing each one to life or out of this isolated trance into more rhythmic movement. The dancers are dressed in their black attire and so is Ms. Rey. In the chorus’ Ms. Rey and the dancers move to faster paced/ unified choreography. In the first verse, Ms. Rey is rapping solo. The dancers now begin to morph into their individual 7 colors. This is shown as a 3 girls then 4 girls on screen together and they change into colorful outfits through static break on the film while doing dance moves. Ms. Rey also goes through a costume change and is now the embodiment of all the 7 colors. This is created with a hair piece crown braided in to her hair. Second verse is in a small room. Ms. Rey is surrounded by candles of the 7 colors. She is rapping her verse at the end of the verse the lights are bumped up to simulate light color energy going into her. Scene cuts again to chorus. Ms. Rey and dancers doing Choreography in unison. Prior to the end of this chorus, the ladies are standing behind Ms. Rey; dancers extend their arms and legs with the extra limbs and create a Shiva- Like arm goddess behind Ms. Rey. Verse 3 finds Ms. Rey in white room. This is another doorway she enters through. It is her last initiation/or battle before she can re-enter reality with all this new knowledge. She is dance fighting with a black entity. A spirit depicted through black smoke. She is holding colorful streamers/ribbon on sticks as her weapon. The video is edited later with reversals of the dance segment giving it an abstract feel. Ms. Rey emerges from these alternate realities back through the doorway into the woods wear her companion is waiting for her (the wolf). She’s faced the darkest parts of herself, her fears she’s battled the dark spirit of the unconscious. She emerges victorious…A Wonder Woman.
