Antony and the Johnsons‘ new video for the single “Epilepsy Is Dancing” from the Secretly Canadian released (as of yesterday [January 20]) The Crying Light, features — among other things — intricately crafted masks, flowers and butterflies dripping from Antony Hegarty’s lips and vibrantly painted (sometimes nude) bodies undulating on the floor.
Antony asked his friends the Wachowski Brothers to work with him on a video for his new single “Epilepsy Is Dancing”. They in turn invited painters Tino Rodriguez and Virgo Paradiso to create costumes and a mystical environment and choreographer Sean Dorsey and his dancers to bring the dream sequence to life. Antony’s artistic partner Johanna Constantine stars as herself in the role of ‘Deer Monster’. The video was lit and shot by the up-and-coming directors of photography, Chris Blasingame and Banker White, and produced by Jim Jerome. The production team collectively named themselves AFAS. Please enjoy the fruits of their San Francisco art party.
