BABIES GONNA CRY
Year of production: 2016
Actor / Dancer: Lucas Carlsson
The song questions and challenges expectations of traditional roles placed on women. In the video, we see WITT performing on a stage in three stereotypical roles for a solitary, unknown audience member. These scenes are juxtaposed against the artist, alone in her dressing room, dismantling the traditionally beautifying accoutrements that we can assume she is feeling pressured to wear.
The video thus presents a dialogue between the singer and unknown forces (presumably that of society). As WITT negotiates this dialogue, she remains triumphant and demonstrates confidence in her choices as she resists this external pressure.
