The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye
Marie Losier) 9:30 pm only
the early nineties, the industrial-rock pioneer Genesis P-Orridge, of the bands
Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV, came to New York where he met and married a young
dominatrix who called herself Lady Jaye. Their romantic and artistic
partnership is depicted—tenderly, unstintingly, and in surprisingly intimate
detail—in the documentary The Ballad of
Genesis and Lady Jaye. The couple played music together, but their
key project—which they named “Pandrogeny”—involved surgery
that made them resemble each other. This dual portrait, using home movies,
archival footage, plenty of the bands’ music, and extensive interviews with
P-Orridge (Lady Jaye died in 2007), brings some amazing stories to light, such
as the older artist’s public art scandals of the mid-seventies and his crucial
association with William Burroughs.
Admission includes both the live performance and film screening.
