British artist Gazelle Twin presents Kingdom Come, a new audio visual performance in collaboration with Chris Turner (Favourite Colour: Black) and Tash Tung, premiering at Manchester Art Gallery.
Commissioned by FutureEverything, this conceptual performance for two vocalists will be staged in six chapters, incorporating electronics, film, and a brand new soundtrack from Gazelle Twin, created from samples and live vocal manipulation. With the piece set on treadmills against a manic, illusory landscape, Kingdom Come places heightening physical demands on the performers, resulting in an exhausting, otherworldly climax.
Taking its title from J. G Ballard’s final novel, Kingdom Come will play with notions of feralness, displacement and the uncanny in the contemporary British, urban landscape.
