Video Review: Jade “One Woman”

Wearing matching black boots, Tonya, Di and Joi walk in unison on the sidewalk in the city.

Through a sepia filter, a car drives in the city. The person driving eyes the young woman walking on the sidewalk.

In a studio, Joi, Tonya and Di use chairs as they dance.

They dance as they walk by a brick wall.

Lit in blue, they walk down the stairs of a loft together.

Against a sky blue background, they smile and put their arms around each other.

They stop to pet someone’s dog on the sidewalk.

The young woman pinches a man’s butt as he talks on the pay phone. She turns his head to him as he laughs.

They continue to walk down the street.
