JOHN FOXX & LOUIS GORDON Australia Tour 2008

JOHN FOXX & LOUIS GORDON Australia Tour 2008

As founder and former front man of Ultravox! until 1979, and subsequently via his solo projects, John Foxx's work has helped pave the way for a generation of electronic musicians. His debut album, 1980's Metamatic, is today regarded of one of the most pioneering albums in electronic music and created a new wave blueprint for the likes of The Human League, Gary Numan, Duran Duran and, in more recent years, The Faint to follow. Metamatic hit a cultural vein again 20 years later when Ladytron, Adult, Tiga and co were drawn to its minimalist, analogue approach.

environment moving forward in a linear direction. From its inception the
art of filmmaking has been dominated by a single form of chronological
development. Each film exists as a series of frames that are static at the

Zen Zen Zo - Zeitgiest

Zeitgiest

Zeitgeist is a retrospective of Zen Zen Zo's Butoh inspired dance-theatre works since 2000. Drawing from the critically acclaimed productions Unleashed, Those with Lucifer, and most recently Zen Zen Zo's international collaborations with American band The Dresden Dolls, Zeitgeist is a collection of raw and provocative pieces that reflect "the spirit (Geist) of our times (Zeit)". This groundbreaking work asks the question, how are we as human beings interacting with ourselves, each other, and the earth at the turn of the new Millennium? The answer is at times heart-breaking, at others humorous, but ultimately hopeful, as the dancers weave together physical theatre, poetic ritual, burlesque, camp, and comedy in Zen Zen Zo’s hallmark style.
