Snap Scene: Lydia Lunch at the Curtin, Carlton 6th July 2019

Goth No-Wave Queen LYDIA LUNCH is back with her spoken word show ”Dust & Shadows” – An impassioned word based performance.

“Dust and Shadows” is a unique combination of otherworldly textures, images and sound set to themes, which deal lyrically with loss, rage, revenge and survival. Haunting images of the numerous ghost towns littered throughout the Spanish desert and the lost lovers whose mysterious specter seem to forever stalk the abandoned ruins and empty rooms create a gorgeous backdrop of atmospheric layers. Psycho ambient soundscapes further the dynamic musicality of Lydia’s lyrical poetry and hypnotic voice.

Created as a multimedia showcase featuring Lydia’s text set to music, “Dust and Shadows” is enhanced by the video images of French visual artist Elise Passavant.
