Genesis Breyer P-Orridge with Edley ODowd
Hyde Park North Meriton Festival Village, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia
28th January 2018
For over five decades, P-Orridge has been a poet, a visual artist, a pioneer of industrial music (as founder of the controversial Throbbing Gristle), a prime mover of multi-media project Psychic TV, which helped kickstart rave culture in the UK. P-Orridge is also a lifelong devotee of the Pandrogyne Project (along with their creative partner and literal other half, Lady Jaye), where their own bodies became a canvas to explore notions of identity and gender. This new project, in which Genesis is joined by Psychic TV bandmate Edley ODowd, continues this journey in a concert that collides caustic rhythms and electronics with bold new ideas about identity and transcendence. As with all windows into the creative mind of P-Orridge, expect to be confronted, surprised, and entertained.
