We regret to advise that the Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Edley ODowd performance has been cancelled. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge sincerely regrets having to cancel their tour due to unexpected complications related to their ongoing struggle with chronic leukemia. If you have booked a ticket, we will be in touch for a full refund.

Trying to sum up Genesis Breyer P-Orridge’s life and body of work is an impossible task.

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, and decried as a “wrecker of civilisation” as part of the groundbreaking COUM Transmissions art collective.

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, sexuality 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.

“Industrial music legend ... P-Orridge’s path is extraordinary in both its ambition and originality” VICE

“Back in the 70s, Genesis P-Orridge was branded the devil incarnate for their bizarre, some said perverted, approach to art and music” The Guardian

“Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Psychic TV managed to make magic and look good doing it" Bad Feeling

“The intensity Breyer P-Orridge brings to many media (sculpture, installation, sound, poetry, etc.) in one exhibition is a remarkable display of an ever-probing mind” Art Critical

Licensed venue: under 18s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
