Speaking of Rose McGowan — who’s been the news because, earlier today, she had an op-ed (responding to Owen Gleiberman’s op-ed on Renee Zellweger’s face) published in The Hollywood Reporter — it turns out the actor/musician/director/activist also has a new music video out today. Though McGowan herself has in the past released her own music and accompanying videos (as with the her “RM486” video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund), today’s is actually a video directed by McGowan for the Miike Snow remix of Yoko Ono’s song, “Catman.” (The track is on her newest LP, Yes, I’m a Witch Too, though it was released in its original form on Approximately Infinite Universe in 1973.)
The video is mostly a recording of a choreographed dance between a younger women and a group of dancers over the age of 60, who begin planted in school desks and then join in the dance.
McGowan said in a statement:
Yoko Ono has been an ardent supporter of women and modern dance for years. Casting women dancers over 60, including one with cancer, was my way of showing that vitality doesn’t die with age. I used color overlays to create my own visual beat.
