When Elements Combine… (AKA “We Made a Video!”)

When Elements Combine… (AKA “We Made a Video!”)

September 27, 2017

D.Webb Designs, Mabina Danseuses and Daniel V of Onza Davichi got together and made this really cool video! Why, other than for the sake of art?

Well, as small business owners/artists, we so often seek collaborations with like-minded people so we can all benefit and grow and reach untapped audiences. Frequently, we receive new lifeblood and fresh ideas from the energy and tone created in those collaborations.

Or to put it another way, when you totally dig each other’s vibe, you make some art together… heh.

And we did. Happy Dance!

This has been a while in the making, with D.Webb being the fulcrum point in our creative triangle. Having already done a video project (and written a blog post about) Daniel V and his activist organization Priceless MVMT, Debbie knew she wanted to work with him again.

2017 African Entertainment Award and HAPA Award nominees Eto’o Tsana and Mabina Danseuses have worn D.Webb Designs pieces in numerous music videos and live performances over the last year or so, because, gosh darn it, they dance so well! (I, for one, can say that the black bandeau has become a staple in my costume go-bag, because it works with EVERYTHING.) And so…

It just made sense to put all three together and see what came of it!

Daniel flew in from LA to film it, Debbie took care of production, created the wardrobe and styled the group, Eto’o provided the choreography and original music for the piece, and voila! Art!

This is a short promo piece of what we put together, and the Elements you will see and hear are:

And then Debbie topped it off with funky one-of-a-kind handsewn pompom belts!

These Shoes Were Made for Dancing...
These Shoes Were Made for Dancing...

July 30, 2019

Feet. Our foundation. Our physical nadir. These tiny points of stability carry the whole of us from toes to arch to ankle. From delicate and curved to broad and flat. Strong and sensuous, the pads of our feet bear traces of every step we have taken. And for a dancer, they do so much more. They point and flex, stretch and kick, ache and bleed. Sometimes ugly, but always beautiful...
