An Audio-Visual Performance

Following on from Gazelle Twin’s widely acclaimed Unflesh LP (crowned Album of the Year by The Quietus) and world tour, her latest project – audiovisual live show, Kingdom Come, is inspired by J.G Ballard’s final novel, and explores tribalism, social conditioning and fascism in the contemporary suburban and consumer landscape.

Originally commissioned by Future Everything Festival in 2016 (UK), the performance features two vocalists on treadmills, silhouetted against an episodic series of mesmerising and violent short films created by British filmmakers Chris Turner and Tash Tung.

With rising acts of terrorism and the political far right across Europe, it makes an uncanny social commentary for the present day, and is a chilling reminder of Ballard’s prophetic writing.
