The Paris-based performer, songwriter, and radio artist presents a lo-fi performance on space-operas composed of forty-eight episodes of the British science-fiction TV series Space 1999. The piece offers music units defined in relation to the producers' roles in the music industry, ranging from performer and composer to manager and artistic director. Through his use of simple actions, little dances, and love songs, Gérald Kurdian prompts the audience to re-consider their understanding of the musical spectacle.

In English

"Hilariously funny as well as deep and dark, a profound combination. There's nothing like it here in the U.S., and we're lucky to get a glimpse of (Gérald's) very unique world view and beautiful musicality."—Laurie Anderson

This event is part of Lecture/Performance, one of Crossing the Line 2011's three curatorial program perspectives.
