Genesis P-Orridge: Bight of The Twin

From GBP 9.00



May 27 2017 14:45 - 16:00


GiF is coming back to Rio cinema to screen a documentary about the cult leader of seminal bands Throbbin Gristle and Psychic TV and occult of Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth - Genesis P-Orridge.

This event coincides with Psychic TV performance of Derek Jarman's soundtrack in Cafe Oto earlier that week.

Bight of the Twin traces P-Orridge's journey to Benin in Africa - which has the highest national average of twins per birth and where they carry a sacred meaning - to examine the idea of embodiment, delve into the Vodun religion and look at its reverence for twins, especially pertinent to Genesis and their late wife and pandrogyne partner Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge.

Genesis & Lady Jaeye Breyer embarked on Pandrogeny Project, an attempt to unite as a "pandrogyne", or single entity, through the use of surgical body modification to physically resemble one another. P-Orridge continued with this project of body modification after Lady Jaye's 2007 death and refers to themselves in third gender.

Directed by LA-based filmmaker and artist Hazel Hill McCarthy III, 2016.

NOW AVAILABLE: Special riso printed poster in A3 - light orange background, bright red foreground.
