GENESIS P-ORRIDGE AUSTRALIAN TOUR CANCELLED DUE TO ILL HEALTH
Art and music pioneer Genesis Breyer P-Orridge sincerely regrets having to cancel their Australian tour due to unexpected complications related to their ongoing struggle with chronic leukemia.
All tickets purchased to the 2 February concert at The SUBSTATION will be refunded.
The Australian exclusive exhibition of works from Genesis P-Orridge, Loyalty Does Not End With Death, the first significant survey of their work on display in Australia, will proceed at The SUBSTATION, from 2 February to 10 March.
Legendary English singer-songwriter, musician, poet, performance, and visual artist, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge performs live on stage with Edley ODowd. The pair collide caustic electronics, percussion and voice in a performance exploring ideas of the self, identity and much more.
P-Orridge rose to notability as founder of the COUM Transmissions art collective, which operated in Britain from 1969 to 1976. P-Orridge fronted the pioneering industrial band Throbbing Gristle between 1975 and 1981 and the experimental multimedia commonage Psychic TV from 1981 to present.
New York-based artist, and percussionist Edley ODowd has been collaborating with P-Orridge for the last 15 years. Together they have toured the world as Psychic TV, which Genesis calls h/er 'favourite line-up ever'.
