About the film:
Turning, based on a critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and Charles Atlas, is a music documentary that explores the heart of that performance. Through its synthesis of Antony´s songs and unfurling video portraiture of the 13 remarkable women who performed on stage, Turning creates an intimate and cinematic experience exploring themes of identity, transcendence and the revelation of essence. 13 “beauties" spinning slowly in the mobile arena. Antony works, both in his performances and in his songs, in a way that examines and challenges traditional perception of identity.
Charles Atlas is a video artist and film pioneer. He has been credited for countless works of art, both for theatres, museums and television. He is best known for his longstanding collaboration with the legendary American choreographer Merce Cunningham. Together the two created a series of groundbreaking works up through the 80s, which have become classics in its genre. Atlas is eminent at creating immersive cinematic expression of something that is alive and created a scene.Through Atlas’s career he has been involved in several forms of cooperation in performance art, mostly as a director, but also as a costume designer, as well as in lighting and doing installations.
