Antony and the Johnsons "Twilight" (live video)
Published Oct 28, 2014For those that missed out on the brief theatrical run of Antony and the Johnsons' concert film Turning, its upcoming DVD release will be a godsend. Ahead of the November 11 due date through Secretly Canadian, though, you can check out a live performance of "Twilight" from the film.
Captured in London in 2006 by filmmaker Charles Atlas, the concert clip presents Antony tackling the opener to his 2000 self-titled debut passionately, smiling and performing masterful hand moves as he details "soaring through the atmosphere." This is gracefully accompanied by his back-up team of string players, a pianist and the unsettlingly awe-inducing movements of a skeletal dancer.
You can check out the clip, glazed in a velvet haze of lights, down below.
