Pastoral (Live)

Exchange / Mar 01 - 7:00PM

“What species is this? What century?”

Forged in a rural idyll in Middle-England, the album Pastoral, by Gazelle Twin exhumes England’s rotten past and shines a torch over its ever-darkening present. Released September 2018 on the artist’s own Anti-Ghost Moon Ray label, Gazelle Twin has since played a series of sold out live dates, and the album was voted album of the year 2018 by The Quietus.

In-keeping with her ever-morphing performance persona Gazelle Twin is now clad in red and white, head to toe. The colours of a familiar flag. A nod to deep and recent history; A jester-come-morris dancer. A post-pagan hooligan, riding its Hobby Horse or conjuring terror with its pipe. Like a modern-day Commedia Dell’Arte characature, she reveals the madness and violence of “ye olde” traditions slammed within contemporary cliches.

AGE RESTRICTION
14+ (under 16s with an adult)

 

Gazelle Twin is the moniker for performance artist, composer and producer Elizabeth Bernholz. Her conceptual albums present dystopian themes through unconventional electronic production and extraordinary live performances which feature changing personas.

“PASTORAL is an album about growing up in Britain, looking back at how it all ended up like this, and experiencing provincial life in a political and cultural climate where I would rather be anywhere else…”
