Sheenah Ko 'Wrap Me Up' by Vincent René-Lortie & Brittney Canda
A support group in a community hall is transformed into a stunning frenzy of movement in Vincent René-Lortie and Brittney Canda's video for Sheenah Ko.
In the community hall, a diverse group of people have gathered in search of an intangible and ethereal sense of meaning. Sheenah Ko is on the podium and as she begins to sing, her voice casting a spell on her audience. That begins to have an irresistible physical effect: individuals start to slide to the floor, compelled to move, perform aggressive flips and tricks, and smash through props.
Part-fantasy and part-nightmare, René-Lortie and Canda's video for Wrap Me Up is unsettling, gripping and entertaining, packed with great performances from their ensemble cast of dancers. Sheenah Ko is impressive too as the confident leader, her hypnotic movement and facial expressions help establish the believability of the idea - this woman could really make you lose your mind and get all of your darkest secrets and emotions out into the open.
Vincent René-Lortie & Brittney Canda
"Wrap Me Up is a collaboration between three misfit artists with specialties in contemporary dance, electronic music, and cinema. In this work, we allowed ourselves to straddle and blend the genres of music video, dance film, and narrative storytelling. The diverse team, both in cast and creators, has resulted in a work that is unlike any other."
