‘Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye’ Hits Twin Cities’ Walker Art Center

Mad, limit-smashing iconoclasts, they need love, too. Witness the story of Throbbing Gristle/Psychic TV/PT3 frontman and all-around provocateur Genesis P-Orridge and his wife Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, who so loved one another that they began having plastic surgery to look more alike and dubbed their lives together an experiment in “pandrogyne”, a completely androgynous paired life that, basically, meant that Genesis and Lady Jaye melded psychically. Say what you will about their methods, but acknowledge nonetheless, because you must: that is some serious commitment to one another. And then, cruel tricks of fate being what they are, Lady Jaye contracted stomach cancer and passed away in 2007. Genesis has continued the pandrogyne experiment since, although s/he’s removed himself from the public eye, largely, preferring to make art and music at home, but s/he’s going to be in the Twin Cities on Wednesday, at the Walker, talking about The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye, Marie Losier’s documentary about the P-Orridges’ mammoth, unhinged, all-encompassing love for each other.
