Genesis P-Orridge dcoumentary opens at the UA Tara tomorrow!

Hi, all. The dcoumentary "The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye," about Genesis P-Orridge, opens in Atlanta tomorrow at the UA Tara.

Genesis P-Orridge, a celebrated progenitor of "industrial music" (from Throbbing Gristle in the '70s to current cult favorites Psychic TV) has been one of the most innovative and influential figures in music and fine art for the last 30 years. But more recently, defying artistic boundaries, Genesis has re-defined his art as a challenge to the limits of biology. In 2000, Genesis began a series of sex reassignment surgeries in order to more closely resemble his love, Lady Jaye (née Jacqueline Breyer), who remained his wife and artistic partner for nearly 15 years. The ultimate act of devotion, his most risky, ambitious, and subversive performance to date, Genesis called this project "Creating the Pandrogyne," an attempt to deconstruct two individual identities through the creation of an indivisible third. This is a love story, and a portrait of two lives that illustrate the transformative powers of both love and art. Director Marie Losier crafts a labyrinthine mise-en-scène of interviews, home movies, and performance footage captured handheld, bringing forth the most intimate details of Genesis's extraordinary, uncanny world. Her award-winning film documents a truly new brand of Romantic consciousness, conveying beauty, dignity and devotion from a perspective never before seen on film.
