The Johnsons - Hegarty Teams Up With Dafoe For Ambitious Theatre Venture
ANTONY & THE JOHNSONS frontman ANTONY HEGARTY is teaming up with movie star WILLEM DAFOE to stage a theatrical tribute to legendary performance artist MARINA ABRAMOVIC in England.
Dafoe will star alongside Abramovic in The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic, which will open at the Lowry Theater in Manchester as part of the city's International Festival in July (11).
Hegarty, who will score the music for the production, tells Spinner.com, "She's (Abramovic) the premier performance artist in the world... It's a biographical piece on her life. It's going to be very interesting. They asked me to write the songs for it and I'll be performing two songs as well."
