Anthea – Alive

Music Video, AT 2021, digital, 3 min, kein Dialog
Program: Musik 1

For Anthea’s current self-staging-allegory “Alive,” Kurdwin Ayub uses the iconicity of sacred structures. A church becomes the setting for a romance with the female savior (Jessyca R. Hauser). The moves are tight and Anthea’s piercingly seductive gaze takes viewers on an escapade of neogothic bubblegum broadside—the compact menu for an aspiring pop diva.
