The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye

Rated NR 72 minutes 2012

The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye is a documentary depicting the love story between Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, and their extreme “pandrogyne” project. When the two married, instead of having children, they opted to physically transform themselves into “one entity.” With this, they underwent several cosmetic surgeries to alter themselves to look like one another and became a “pandrogynous” being they called Breyer P-Orridge. If this sounds confusing, that’s because it is … and watching this doesn’t really clear anything up. The documentary has no real “interviews,” per se, except for a befuddling voiceover by Genesis. The film bounces from topic to topic, focusing at first on Genesis’ life as a musician/performance artist, then solely on the couple’s love affair and project. The topic, while strange, is obviously intriguing and could have made for an extremely fascinating film—but the lack of a linear narrative makes it nearly impossible to comprehend.
