ANTONY Plans Unique Symphony Shows Across This Summer, Teams With Matthew Herbert For Coachella, Curates Parisian Art Show And Releases Epilepsy Is Dancing EP

Antony and the Johnsons will play a series of unique concerts in collaboration with symphonies across Europe this summer. Presenting a wide array of material including songs from The Crying Light, the concerts will feature large format orchestras (36-52 players) presenting arrangements developed by Antony and Nico Muhly and conducted by Rob Moose. Premiering at the Manchester Festival, Antony has also been commissioned to create a stage environment for The Crying Light inspired by Bauhaus stage lighting design and considering the dreams of crystals inside mountains. Go HERE to see a full listing of Antony’s live performances.

In addition, Antony and the Johnsons will play the Coachella Music and Arts Festival on Sunday April 19th. For these two one-off events, Antony has collaborated with avant-garde composer and electronics wiz Matthew Herbert. The duo will present stark electronic re-imaginings of songs from Antony and the Johnsons’ new album The Crying Light.

Antony has also been invited by designer and gallerist Agnes B to curate an art show at Gallery Du Jour in Paris, opening on April 11th. Entitled “Six Eyes” the exhibition will feature work by Peter Hujar, Kiki Smith, Alice O’Mally, William Basinski and James Elaine, Antony and Barbara Cummard.
