'THE DEVILS FRUIT' - ALEX NOBLE AW/12 FASHION FILM
On|Off Fanzine Film AW12 : Alex Noble & Joost Vandebrug from On|Off TV on Vimeo.
An anachronistic interpretation of the character Salome.
A world in which strippers, like comic book super heroes have alter ego’s and supernatural powers.
The film follows Salome as a hot, trash, rock stripper. We see her despondent in her dressing room, eyes over cast with day dreams and visions,the rattle of demonic voices tinkling in the background; She is a concubine of the devil - ‘The Devils Fruit’.
The reflections we catch of her in her dressing table mirror are that of her alter self, a rapacious vision of seduction and energy, supernatural and possessed in her movements. Futuristic colored plastic and exotic print outfits adorn her body, contrasting the denim and leather of her stripper get up.
The visions are cut short abruptly by the real world as she enters the stage for her solo audience.
As she starts to dance and move we see Salome transforming into her alter self, enhanced by music, pace and fashion. Exuding female power and raw sexuality. As the momentum builds we see her transition into an alternate universe of surreal heightened energy, where her audience manifest as surreal objects and succumb to the dark powers of her triumphant, twisted and exotic dance.
