Lot Essay

Producer Michael G. Wilson classified the pre-title sequence of Spectre (2015) as the “biggest we’ve ever done”. It is a frenetic on-foot chase through the heart of Mexico City through a monumental 'Day of the Dead' procession as it advances toward the City’s main square, the Zócalo. Part of the procession is made up of a troupe of wheel dancers. Costume designer Jany Temime worked with choreographer Priscila Hernandez to invent a six-wheel base structure that gave a floating illusion to the dancers' movements. The wheel dancer dress is based on a traditional Mexican Tehuana dresses. This costume was worn by one of the Wheel Dancers in the Day of The Dead Parade during filming for Spectre, 2015. There were three other Wheel Dancers wearing red flower ‘Tehuana’ style dresses in the parade, which have retained by the EON Archive.
