Antony and the Johnsons: "The Spirit Is Gone" (Video)


Antony's most recent muse, Kazuo Ohno performs a Butoh dance routine in the video for "The Spirit is Gone," the latest single from Swanlights. Ohno died earlier this year, so this video is sort of like Antony's eulogy, especially considering the themes of death and spirits that give the song its melancholy. Probably the most moving video featuring a Butoh dancer you'll see all of your life. 



Swanlights is out now.

Beautiful and haunting. Makes you want to hold on tightly to those you love before they are gone.
