Mercy

    Video

    Based on the dancing plague of 1518, hundreds of people become seized by an involuntary hysterical reaction to dance. Whether a curse from St. Vitus, malnutrition, or a case of mass hysteria, the dancing plague remains unexplained.

    Petunia’s music grabs hold of you and doesn’t let go. His singing ranges from the most delicate you’ve ever heard to the most powerful.

    About the song

    Imagine the walking dead mixed with a period flash mob, scored by some beautifully haunting music. Our story begins with our 'patient zero' as she embodies movement and dance foreign to her body. This dancing spreads to other townsfolk as they fill the townsquare. After dancing to exhaustion the only person left standing is Petunia and his Mercy.

    Why I want to work with Petunia

    When we first heard about the dancing plague, we were so intrigued by the madness & mystery surrounding it. We feel the same way about Petunia. We want to pay homage to such a rare event as the plague, and capture it in the cinematic landscape of Alberta. Petunia is well into his prime as an artist and deserves a masterful music video.
