Debuting her first official video from ‘The Visitor’, Kadhja Bonet steps oh so gracefully to the frontline, in her perfectly choreographed visual accompaniment to the single ‘Fairweather Friend’.
The new visual is set in a mystical prairie scene with a trio of dancers who are slowly linked together in poetic movement. Kadhja in her own words describes the visual best, saying “I wanted to suggest the principle dancer as an atom, accustomed to a certain kind of movement – traveling, drifting in time. The introduction of a new bond excites and changes her direction, and she has the good fortune to experience a new type of journey. The final atom is introduced, groping for a free electron. For a brief period it appears they might form a triad, but very quickly it becomes apparent the bond is stronger as two, as human chemistry can often be. The first element is left again to continue her own awkward, slow, and solitary journey. She is indivisible though, and integral. I simply bear witness.” Watch the video above.
