The Quays also have done promotional films/ads for Honeywell Computers, Skips's
Crisps, ICI Woodcare, BBC2, Coca-Cola, and Slurpee!
They have designed stage sets for productions of Tchaikovsky's Mazeppa, Feydeau's
A Flea In Her Ear, Prokofiev's A Love For Three Oranges, and Moliere's
Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme.
- The Brothers Quay: Volume 1.
Includes "The Street of Crocodiles", and "The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer".
It runs a bit short at 35 minutes combined, though.
- The Brothers Quay: Volume 2.
Includes "Epic of Gilgamesh", Rehearsals for Extinct Anatomies", and
"Nocturna Artificiala". These total at about 47 minutes.
Both are available on LaserDisc from The Voyager Company and VHS from Expanded
Entertainment. The LaserDiscs are entirely CAV, a huge bonus that allows you to get
perfect frame-by-frame access to better examine the puppets and sets
Thank you everyone who has contributed to these pages to make them the most complete
Brothers Quay resource on the net... sorry I had to take down your/my work! ; )

music videos (Michael Penn, 16 Horsepower).
