Antony and the Johnsons , joined by
ground-breaking film director and video artist Charles Atlas, journey
through an exotic terrain of innocence, metamorphosis and androgyny by way
of an elegantly stylized blend of music, projected imagery, and live
performance. Antony, whose vocal stylings have been compared to the likes of
Nina Simone and Lotte Lenya, will be accompanied by the Johnsons — string
trio, piano, bass and drums – whose performance of Antony1s highly dramatic
and lyrical music unfolds before Atlas1 intimate and hypnotic portraits of
thirteen Beauties slowly turning onstage while their images are captured and
projected onscreen. Known for his award-winning collaborations with such
pioneers as Merce Cunningham, Michael Clark, Leigh Bowery, and John Kelly,
Charles Atlas1 most recent series of live video portraits entitled 3Instant
Fame,2 was presented at Participant Inc. Gallery in 2003.
Antony is a featured artist in the 2004 Whitney Museum1s 2004 Biennial
Exhibition
Antony and the Johnsons new album, 3I am a Bird Now,2 is scheduled for
release in August 2004.
Antony and the Johnsons tread an exquisite line between ghostly and
gorgeousS Antony produces chamber pop in its truest form: arty, exotic and
frequently bizarreSthe result is sublime. NY Daily News
