DVD + DOCUMENTARY ANNOUNCE // Antony and the Johnsons And Charles Atlas Announce ‘TURNING’ Documentary And Concert, Out Nov. 10/11 Via Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade


Today, we are proud to announce the release of TURNING, a concert film documentary captured during the critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and the Johnsons and Charles Atlas during the fall of 2006. TURNING is a synthesis of Antony’s songs and Atlas’s video portraiture of the 13 woman who performed on stage in a series of performances. Watch the trailer and listen to track ‘Daylight And The Sun‘ (Available as instant download with iTunes pre-orders) above.

From Antony-

“I would describe TURNING as some of the most significant work of my career. Charles Atlas and I spent seven years producing the film and another year and a half showing the film at select festivals. In the last three years especially, the recognition of transgendered people and the resurgence of feminist consciousness has exploded in popular culture around the world. We planted some seeds for this zeitgeist in 2006, when I travelled with thirteen courageous women across Europe and presented the concert TURNING, exploring the intersection between images of contemporary trans-femininity and visions of pioneering future feminist artists such as Kembra Pfahler and Johanna Constantine. We shared this circle of modern femininity with the world, bringing it from the late night stages of NYC to some of the most highly regarded theaters in Europe.”

TURNING saw its theatrical release from fall 2011 – summer 2012, premiering at festivals in London, Melbourne, New York City, and Copenhagen. The release of the deluxe edition of the TURNING DVD will coincide with select TV screenings around the world and will include a CD of the entire concert. The CD will contain live renditions of songs from the first three Antony and the Johnsons‘ full length albums – Antony and the Johnsons, I Am A Bird Now, and The Crying Light as performed by an ensemble of musicians including Maxim Moston, Rob Moose, Julia Kent, Parker Kindred, Jeff Langston and Thomas Bartlett. Additionally, it will also feature two rare Antony and the Johnsons studio recordings from that period.

TURNING will be available on DVD+CD and digitally on November 11 in North American via Secretly Canadian and November 10th in the UK and Europe via Rough Trade. Pre-order now via Secretly Canadian/Rough Trade, iTunes, Amazon, and your local record store.
